Retail/Wholesale: JACK WOODFIN
PRESIDENT AND CEO, WOODFIN HEATING INC., RICHMOND
Woodfin Heating began as a small heating-oil business founded by John and Anne Woodfin in 1977. Their son, Jack, has led the operation since his father’s 2010 death. Today, Woodfin Heating also offers HVAC installation and servicing, as well as electrical and plumbing services, indoor air solutions, home security and fuel delivery.
The Woodfin family of companies also includes EMC Mechanical Services, a full-service mechanical contractor, and 20 convenience stores in the greater Richmond area. In 2021, Woodfin acquired Richmond’s Capitol Heating and Cooling.
As a young man, Jack Woodfin followed in his father’s footsteps, graduating from Virginia Military Institute, where he studied electrical engineering and played varsity tennis. After receiving his MBA from the University of Virginia in 1995, Woodfin joined the family business as retail manager.
His hobbies include tennis, NASCAR and go-kart racing. Last year, Woodfin Heating co-sponsored the “Hot Wheels: Race to Win” exhibit at the Science Museum of Virginia.
Each month, Woodfin Heating matches contributions to sponsored military charities like Spirit of America, which provides financial support for needs identified by U.S. troops and diplomats.
