Jef Vander Borght

Jef was born and raised in Lima, Peru, where he completed high school before immigrating to the United States in 1968. He attended the University of Southern California where he earned both his B.S. in Architecture (1973) and his Masters in Architecture with an emphasis in Urban Planning (1977). In 1975, he married his wife, Susan and settled in Burbank where they had their three children, Jill, Kary and Kyle.

Professionally, he has been actively practicing Architecture and Construction for over thirty years. He is the President and together with his children, he founded The Vander Borght Group, Inc., an architectural, construction and real estate firm, located in Burbank. He founded the company as a means of fusing his lifelong professional goals with his personal commitments to his family and local community.

Jef is firmly and passionately committed to sustainability, thoughtful urban planning, and green building. As such, he is certified as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional, LEED ™ AP and a Certified Build it Green Professional, CBGP. Since 1989, he has also focused this passion in his local community as a former Mayor of the City of Burbank, a member of its City Council and Planning Board, and as a member of countless other local boards and committees. He currently chairs the Sustainable Burbank Task Force, a group of over 15 professionals with a variety of backgrounds but singularly interested in the protection and sustainability of our environment for our enjoyment and that of future generations.
