James "Jim" C. Justice II is the CEO of the James C. Justice Companies. Justice bought The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia in 2009 when it was facing bankruptcy. Besides The Greenbrier, the Justice family has owned or developed other large recreational properties. According to Marshall University’s website, where Jim Justice received his undergraduate and MBA degrees, the family developed the Stoney Brook Plantation, a 15,000-acre hunting and fishing preserve in West Virginia’s Monroe County. In 2012, Wintergreen Resort announced that it had been sold to the Justice family. The Albemarle Conservation Easement Authority accepted a conservation easement in July 2019.
