Vice President of Finance, Russell Jensen, brings a worldview to Glen Oaks Escrow. He spent his formative years overseas including attendance at American University in Dubai where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Management. After getting his feet wet working with Ernst & Young, Russell returned to the United States to pursue work with non-profit organizations such as C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and 211 LA in various capacities including Director of Finance.
“I was ready to do something different,” commented Russell on his move to Glen Oaks Escrow after a 13-year period working with 501(c)(3) organizations. “The position here dovetails perfectly with my experience and skills, and I’m excited in the opportunity to learn more about the real estate industry. The next five years are going to be very interesting in the Southern California market, which is often a harbinger for the rest of the country. I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s goals and business objectives.” Russell will be helping to support a sustainable business practice for the organization, identifying and facilitating accounting efficiencies, and managing the needs of various accounting departments falling beneath the Pango Group corporate umbrella.
Outside of work, he enjoys cycling and continues to volunteer his time as Treasurer with three Los Angeles-based non-profit groups.
