Julie Jones has been selected as the new Chief Financial Officer of Beaufort Academy.
“Julie Jones brings an excellent and diverse finance background to the position,” Beaufort Academy Head of School Dan Durbin said in a release. “We are looking forward to her leadership in our finance department.”
Jones, a current BA parent and head swim coach, holds two Bachelor’s degrees – one in Journalism and Mass Communications, another in Accounting, graduating Cum Laude.
Most recently, Jones held the position of Cash Manager for the cast-iron cookware company Le Creuset. For more than two years, Jones worked in the company’s corporate office located in Early Branch, managing the banking relationships and vendor/customer accounts for their wholesale division, and 90 Le Creuset retail stores.
Jones, and her husband, Jake, have two children attending Beaufort Academy – Claire, a rising 5th grader, and Trevor, a rising 7th grader.
“We chose Beaufort Academy for our children because we were drawn to the close-knit environment,” says Julie. “We love being part of a family within the community, one that truly cares about their student’s future and educational successes. The BA atmosphere reflects the essential characteristics of leadership not only within the school, but beyond campus in the Beaufort community.
“I am proud to not only be a BA parent and coach, but to also serve as the new CFO, an integral part of Beaufort Academy’s future.”
