Justin Reesor Director of Finance & Administration

Justin has over 10 years of finance and operations experience in both small and publicly traded companies. With RENEW, he oversees the firm's finance and accounting operations and administrative strategy while also providing management and operations support to portfolio companies. Prior to joining the RENEW team, Justin spent nearly six years at Rosetta Stone in procurement and business operations roles. He also serves on multiple boards of directors and has helped advise non-profit organizations on accounting and financial systems.

Justin graduated from Eastern Mennonite University in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in business administration and a minor in accounting. In May 2016, he received his MBA, with honors, from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

In 2009, Justin spent three months in Lesotho and South Africa, engaging in language, history, and cultural studies and volunteer service projects. He also spent two months in Kenya, in 2006 volunteering at a recreational center for refugees displaced from Somalia and Ethiopia. This knack for service, background in finance, and interest in the economic development of Africa led Justin to RENEW where he firmly believes in creating positive social impacts in Africa through investment in the private sector via SMEs.
