From time to time we track down a member of IABC Lincoln and ask a few questions so you can get to know him or her better. Here we talk with Jill Jacobs, the chapter’s 2016–2017 Vice President of Finance.

Business Development Manager. I acquire and develop targeted new business while working to retain our current client base and increase existing client revenue.

I originally joined IABC to simply help with finances, but I have recently moved to a new role and am so happy to be part of this group because of all the great people and information.

For fun, I love reading, riding my motorcycle, and golfing.
