Jane S. Lockett, CEO and Managing Partner

Jane Lockett is the Managing Partner of Gillams & Jones, A Management Company, Inc. and President/CEO of Steven & Stephens, Inc..

Lockett realized her vision to launch Gillams & Jones management services in 1999. She saw the demand for small businesses to outsource their finance and accounting operations to enable them to grow and remain competitive without adding significantly to their overhead. She has compiled a team of professionals specializing in areas of accounting, auditing, and tax and management advisory services to provide the proper diversification of services.

Lockett accepted the position of Corporate Controller for Budget Rent-A-Car, a top rated rental car franchise at a time when the company had a negative profit margin due to unnecessary personnel and operations expenses. She implemented new guidelines to streamline the workload and downsize an exorbitant accounting department. These new guidelines allowed the organization to maximize the performance of their staff while reducing costs, resulting in a dramatic profit gain. Through her hard work, the faltering company was transformed into a profitable venture.

In 1994 Ms. Lockett was instrumental in laying the groundwork for the Initial Public Offering of Team Rental Group. She ultimately held the position of Corporate Controller of the western region and was transferred to the regional office where she introduced new procedures and cost analysis, resulting in a $1,500,000 turnaround in annual bottom-line profits. Lockett held this position until she agreed to serve as the Vice President/Chief Financial Officer at another subsidiary in January 1998.

Lockett earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from San Diego State University with a minor in Business Management. She possesses extensive knowledge of all facets of accounting and financial management including hands-on and in-depth work performed earlier in her career at a public accounting firm.

Ms. Lockett has been featured in several prestigious publications such as Fortune, Small Business, Real Woman, Inc., Woman's Day, and Entrepreneur, Inc.

Testimonials

We are here to help small business clients. Some of our satisfied customers share their experience with Gillams & Jones.

I used the services of Gillams & Jones in November of 2004. With a sales meeting fast approaching, I was in need of a dynamic PowerPoint presentation that was meant to both inform and entertain a seasoned sales team. Utilizing some rough notes and working by telephone, Gillams & Jones put together a presentation that truly exceeded my expectations. Not only was this accomplished on time and under budget, they utilized a web service that allowed me to download the final version without having to wait for a hard copy on disc. Very impressive work from start to finish!
