Jennifer Knotts

Chief Financial Officer

Jennifer was raised in southern Indiana, Seymour. She began college at Indiana State University in 1996 before finishing her associate degree in Business Administration with a Legality Specialty from Ivy Tech State College.

Jennifer met her husband while home on summer break from ISU in 1997 and celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary this past November. They have a 22-year-old son, who married his middle school sweetheart in 2023, and a 20-year-old son.

Even though her degree is in business, every career she’s had was either in finance or accounting. Her mother was a CFO (Chief Financial Officer) for JayC/Kroger food stores and her grandfather was an algebra teacher. She lovingly says, “Numbers just come naturally to me thanks to my upbringing.” After being an Accounting Manager for a management company of homeowners’ associations, she decided to sideline her career to stay home with her youngest son. Once her youngest entered kindergarten, Jennifer went back to work as an assistant for an Indiana-based utility company.

During her time at the utility company, she was a “jill of all trades”. She dabbled in everything from Accounting/Finance, Customer Service, Administration, and Operations. In 2017, with a growing family and bustling career, Jennifer decided to go back to school to obtain her bachelor’s degree in Business Management. In 2018, she fulfilled this dream and graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University. Jennifer is now following in her mother’s footsteps and was named Chief Financial Officer for IDO Incorporated in January 2024.

In Jennifer’s free time, she loves reading, cooking, spending time with her family, hiking with her husband, and is a self-proclaimed “mediocre outdoorswoman”. Trying her best to play the part. She is a philanthropist who spends her time outside of work advocating for others, including children with cancer. She is the acting Board President (previously treasurer) of her homeowners’ association, a board member of Clarks Chapel Cemetary, and treasurer to the IDO Board of Directors. She also serves on two committees with the Indy Chamber Central Indiana Women’s Business Center Council. In the past, she also volunteered at Gleaner’s Food Bank and was heavily involved in fundraising efforts for United Way.
