In 1996—six years out of graduate school—Jill Jones was named Treasurer at Queens University in Charlotte where she managed a budget greater than $100 million, including endowment. She oversaw the school’s Business Office and Human Resource Department. When she moved to Asheville in 2002, Jill had already established a reputation for her business management and leadership skills. She was working as the US Finance Manager for Braiform Enterprises, a $250 million global retail supplier, when she joined Kaplan CFO in 2016. Not wanting to lose Jill, Braiform followed her, and became a Kaplan CFO client.

"I enjoy working with a variety of businesses in our community. Growing local businesses, building relationships within our community, and connecting people are some of the best parts of my job!"
