Company Team


Executive Officer and Brand Manager 

Jeffrey is a guitar player from Pinson, Alabama. At least that's where it all started. After spending several years on the road and in studios producing projects for a number of up and coming artists and songwriters; He realized his ultimate passion in life was helping other people achieve their dreams and translating their vision into reality. This realization urged him toward a series of entrepreneurial opportunities in the fields of creative design, branding, upscale contracting, and real estate development. It was during this season that he first met and began forging a close friendship with the McSweeney family. An auspicious encounter that would eventually lead to an invitation to join the McSweeney Holdings biz dev and management team. Driven by a personal faith in Jesus and a practical philosophy that "It's the value you add, problems you solve, lives you touch, and the friends you keep that matter most in life" there is nothing that Jeffrey enjoys more than personally connecting with McSweeney Designs' team members, clients and strategic partners and helping to provide creative coach design solutions that enable people to successfully travel between the worlds of business and pleasure and maximize the value of their time with family and friends. Jeffrey lives in Helena, Alabama with his beautiful wife & better half, Lisa Hunter and their 3 children Brooklyn, Blake, and Will. With a packed work schedule and active family life there is not a lot of time left for playing guitar these days. But with so many other reasons to be grateful he doesn't seem to mind at least not much anyway. His weekend hobbies include watching his boys play ball, Cars & Coffee, and whatever his wife Lisa says.
