Director of Finance
Jennifer Barnes graduated from California State University-Fullerton with a Bachelor’s in Business/Accounting. While at CSUF, Jennifer was invited to join the honors society, Beta Alpha Psi (Delta Beta Chapter), and became a member of the Accounting Society at CSUF.
After college, Jennifer was recruited and hired by the top tier accounting firm RSM US, LLP (formerly known as McGladrey). While working with RSM, Jennifer performed financial statement audits for large publicly-held companies in technology and manufacturing, such as Epicor, Autobytel, Maxwell, and Lantronix. She also assisted publicly-held clients with Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 (SOX) implementation, reduction of controls, and controls testing.
RSM led her to a very successful Assistant Vice President position at Bank of America, where she managed the SOX, Financial Statement Audit (FAR) and SOC 1 report (AT-801/SSAE 16) portfolio, under Default Servicing. Her efforts in control rationalization resulted in reduced controls/testing, which resulted in lower audit fees and lower fees for the company. She is a six-time awarded employee with gold, silver, and bronze awards, along with the Presidential Volunteer Award.
Jennifer is the proud mother of twin boys, which keep her very busy. She is also step-mother to older twin boys that are grown and thriving in their own tech careers. In her spare time, she loves to volunteer at Our Father’s Table, an organization focused on aiding the homeless, which has lifted over 170 people into permanent housing. Additionally, Jennifer and her son cook at Orange County Rescue Mission/Village of Hope, once a month for the last 8 years, giving homeless families a hot meal.
Jennifer joined Montage’s teams in 2019 as Montage’s Director of Finance. She handles invoicing/billing, bookkeeping and accounting tasks for Montage. Jennifer Barnes can be reached at [email protected].
