Jake Brames is a Client Manager whose hard work ethic and passion was instilled in his roots at an early age while growing up on the family farm. Jake joined our team in 2019 after serving for over a decade as the lead financial officer for two different nonprofits. He was most recently the CFO of the Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne, Indiana and directed the financial reporting of the historic venue. Jake led the financial reporting for “The Vision for the Embassy” – the $10M capital campaign transforming vacant floors of the Indiana Hotel into multi-purpose venue space including the two-story ballroom and rooftop patio. Additionally, he was a significant contributor to the strategic plan, the budgeting process and trend and variance analysis. Prior experience includes over a dozen years in the automotive and manufacturing industries.
Jake works primarily with nonprofit clients, providing them with strategic accounting services that include outsourced CFO and operational accounting services.
Jake holds a BS in business with a concentration in accounting. He is also a past volunteer for several small organizations including the West Central Neighborhood Association, Fort Wayne Civic Theatre and the Positive Resource Connection.
Jake and his brother still operate and manage the family farm near Monroeville, Indiana. In addition to being outdoors, other interests include traveling (usually to warm destinations), landscaping and gardening. In the seasonal downtime, Jake can be found at the neighborhood pool with friends and family.
