One by one, the Vecino Group has added the best in the business. Qualifications wise and heart wise. Together, we’re embodying the combination of development and idealism that started it all.

BRAD HOLGATE
SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER

We challenge you to find a nicer guy than Brad. With a work ethic honed growing up on a farm and a faith that permeates everything he does, Brad heads up the VG’s second West Coast office (Salt Lake City.) He’s a Senior Project Manager. A father of five. (And honestly, his kindness can’t be overstated.)

JOHN INAHARA
MASTER CARPENTER
NIKKOLA JAMES
AIA, LEED AP
DESIGN PROFESSIONAL

Nikkola’s an Architect by trade, designer by passion & practical by design. A life-time learner, you’ll find a stack of books by her bed & about 80 potential conversations floating in her head. Born in the Caribbean, raised in the Northeast, & smitten by the South, Nikkola makes connections wherever she goes (currently the design utopia of Minneapolis, MN.)

JOHN JENKINS
PROJECT COORDINATOR
ADDISON JONES
AIA, LEED AP
DESIGN PROFESSIONAL

Addison recently achieved 2 major life events—a Masters in architecture one month, getting married the next. Now he’s focused on: Impactful design. Newlywed life. Hand-crafting furniture. Playing five musical instruments. And seeking shalom (peace) in our city and our nation. (The feel-good sensation one gets from reading about Addison translates to real life too.)

RICK MANZARDO
PRESIDENT

You know the guy in the room who doesn’t talk a lot but everyone wants to hear what he has to say? That’s Rick. President of the VG. Deal wizard. Finance expert. Margarita craftsman. Also, kind of what folks mean when they say “salt of the earth good guy.” (Rick did not write his own bio. Promise.)

MATT MCLAUGHLIN
PROJECT MANAGER
PATRICK MCWHIRT
CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Ideas from pixels to print, that’s Patrick. Creative Director. Master designer. Occasional banjo-er. Patrick ensures that the gut check of each project—the essence of Vecino—comes through loud & clear. Also loud: the guitars & amps that sit behind the giant cow silhouette in his office. (He’s also mastered the art of smiling with his eyes. Twinkly as St. Nick, we swear.)

JENNIFER MELORE
ACCOUNTANT

As a Vecino Group accountant, Jen sits at a desk. On horseback is her favorite seat, though. A lifelong rider, Jen decided to share her talents with others and now volunteers by giving special needs kids lessons. She has a background in real estate. A heart for others. And a desire to make a difference. (We’re glad Jen dismounted long enough to come to work at Vecino.)

JARED MIESNER
ASSISTANT PROJECT MANAGER
STACY JURADO-MILLER
CHIEF MISSION OFFICER

Prone to toothy smiles and passionate causes, Stacy brought the greater good mission to the Vecino Group and maintains its focus today. As a Co-Founder & a Supportive Housing Developer, she’s grateful* to make a living through social activism. (*also grateful for: fine-waiving day at the library, morning workouts, and any weekend that doesn’t involve a kid b’day party.)

J. MATTHEW MILLER
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Fan of the yet to be. Dreamer of big dreams. Full-time family man & part-time political junkie. With a passion for unconventional business approaches, a knack for strategy, and a genuine enjoyment of providing opportunity, Matt sees no limit to the good the VG can achieve. (Which is why we feel good calling him our CEO.)
