Brenda

Chief Financial Officer

Remember that roommate who balanced her checkbook to the penny every month? We hired her.

At Morgan & Co Brenda manages all financial and operational matters of the company, works with client account teams to manage annual budgets, client billing, reporting and the receivables and payables process for online, offline and promotional media advertising campaigns.

Her accounting background is the culmination of over eight years with Hibernia National Bank. She was a Product Manager of Account Analysis, Cash Vault and Float Management within the Treasury Management division of the bank. Her responsibilities required continuous improvement in work processes along with research and development of new product offerings for the bank’s commercial clients.

A graduate of Tulane University with a B. A. in History, she was recently named Operations/Administration Person of the Year by the Advertising Club of New Orleans. Brenda grew up in a military family on the move, but she is now officially deemed a local New Orleanian. She’s more than earned her stripes attending countless local festivals, fishing the marshes and voting in her share of elections with at least one corrupt Louisiana politician.
