President & Founder
Joerdan founded Hughes Building Group in 2019 after spending several years working for custom home builders in the Middle Tennessee area. Originally from Nashville, Joerdan grew up around the construction industry working with his dad (a contractor) while developing his passion for home design following his mom around to open houses. After meeting his wife, Jaclyn, at school in Birmingham, AL, the two stayed there until the birth of their oldest daughter, McClain Hughes Simpson, in 2017. After moving back to Jaclyn’s hometown of Columbia, Joerdan saw the need for a modern custom home builder in Maury County. He founded the company under a family name—his grandfather’s name, his own middle name, and now the middle name of his oldest daughter. That name means something to him, and the pride he takes in his work reflects just that. Joerdan founded Hughes Building group on the belief that open and honest communication, paired with the best in building science and trade partner craftsmanship, would always produce a home clients could be proud of for decades down the road. Joerdan has a passion for bringing his clients’ dream homes to life, and he’ll work tirelessly to make sure that dream becomes a reality. Outside of work you can find him playing golf, taking the boat out on the lake, or spending time with his family.
Anna Kate joined Hughes Building Group in 2022 after obtaining her Associate Degree in Business Management from Columbia State Community College. She interned with Hughes Building Group during the spring of 2022, gaining valuable experience in office management, bookkeeping, and client communication. After a few months, it was evident that Anna Kate had the skill set to move into a full-time position as Office Administrator. Anna Kate works diligently each day to keep our back-end processes running smoothly, helping to insure a smooth construction process for all of our clients, vendors, and trade partners. When she doesn’t have her hands full keeping us on track in the office, Anna Kate loves to be outside spending time with her favorite people. She enjoys traveling and experiencing new places, but as the youngest of 4 (only girl…), nothing brings her more joy than being an Aunt to her nieces and nephews.

At Hughes Building Group, Caleb oversees our commercial construction and residential renovation projects. Leaning on his athletic background and his customer first approach to everything he does, Caleb brings an incredibly cohesive and positive attitude to every project he manages. When he’s not at work, Caleb enjoys spending time with his wife and their 2 kids, playing golf, or finding something on his own house to renovate.
