The Mountain Standard Team


jeff hanesworth - president / Ceo / Co-Owner

Jeff, a Wyoming native and graduate of the University of Wyoming, began his professional construction experience at the age of fifteen building custom homes for a prestigious builder in the Bridger Tetons.  While completing his Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Corporate Finance, Jeff continued to work in the construction trades, including founding his first construction services business.   Upon completion of his degree, Jeff moved on to succeed in greater leadership and executive management positions in the general construction, engineering, fabrication, and support services for some of the largest privately held firms in the construction industry.  Jeff’s entrepreneurial, business, and building enthusiasm stems from his passion for creation and improvement, which defines his strategic approach to building world-class teams and organizations.   With his many years of trade labor, education, and corporate experience, Jeff chose to expand his business portfolio and create Mountain Standard Homes; a premier home building and construction management company committed to “elevating excellence”.  

Additionally, Jeff is the Managing Member of Twin Pines Investment Group, LLC.; was elected to serve as the Chairman/CEO for Associated Builders and Contractors of Central California for two consecutive terms; possesses his Colorado Real Estate Broker License; is a certified Lean-Sigma Champion; and has multiple construction certifications and designations. 

Jeff enjoys an abundant life with his amazing wife Brooke and their two remarkable daughters.
