Kevin Shields

Vice President, Jacksonville Market
“My favorite part of construction is getting to know the people that use the buildings we construct. At Foresight, our projects are so much more than profits or losses. Each project represents individuals and families whose lives we have made a lasting impact on by bettering their communities with our work.”

Kevin Shields currently serves as Vice President for the Jacksonville Market. His responsibilities include leading and providing oversight for business development, operations, strategic planning, personnel, risk management, community engagement, pre-construction, and construction activities for the Jacksonville division.

As a child in Ohio, he always enjoyed building things – tinker toys, link-n-logs, and legos sparked a lifelong passion. His fascination grew into disassembling radios, tools, and motors and would eventually lead him to study at Virginia Tech, which is where he met his wife. They moved to Jacksonville, Florida and raised their four beautiful children near the sunny beaches. He went on to graduate with a B.S. in Building Construction Management from the University of North Florida where he earned the Industry Leader award for his graduating class. Now, you’ll find Kevin enjoying fishing, swimming, and model railroading.

Meaningful relationships and professional excellence are central values to Kevin. His involvement in community and industry organizations are evidence of that. He’s an active member of the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) – Florida First Coast Chapter; Urban Land Institute (ULI) North Florida Chapter; Florida Healthcare Engineering Association (FHEA) – District II; American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE); First Coast Manufacturers Association (FCMA); and is a board member of a local Non-profit – Bring Your Brokenness, Inc.
