John Bugg

John Bugg, the dynamic co-founder of JEBCO alongside Bob Knott since 2019, is a from Durham, NC and a graduate of Appalachian State University with a degree in business. John’s journey in the professional world is as varied as it is impressive.

He first cut his teeth in sales within the beer industry in Raleigh, a role that brewed his foundational skills and work ethic.

John’s career path then took a constructive turn, leading him into sales within the construction industry. This journey saw him leaving footprints in Charlotte, Columbia (SC), Chattanooga, and finally settling in Jacksonville. It’s here that John’s talents truly shone, working tirelessly (and might we say, intensely!) with Facility Managers to tackle every conceivable building envelope issue.

In the field, John is akin to the Sherlock Holmes of “leaks,” equipped with a forensic tool belt and an unrivaled knowledge of materials. Under his leadership, JEBCO doesn’t just find problems – it designs solutions. And with JEBCO’s expert “attack” crew, these solutions are implemented with precision and efficiency.

John’s life outside of JEBCO is just as fulfilling. He enjoys life in Jacksonville with his wife, Kelly, their two daughters, and Elroy, their lovably large dog. His journey from beer to buildings, underpinned by a strong business acumen, makes John Bugg not just a CEO, but a visionary leader at the helm of JEBCO.
