Renée Barnstone

Chief Financial Officer

Renée’s mission is to lead and scale the company’s financial, administration and infrastructure needs to support the growth of the Company. Although a recent transplant to Charleston from Silicon Valley, her roots are in the northeast, with another 20 years in the southeast. She is thrilled to be back. Renée is licensed as a CPA and earned her undergraduate degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Renée brings over 30 years of executive leadership, strategy and advisory experience across a broad cross-section of companies, primarily middle-market and early-stage. Her diverse global experience in the CFO and COO roles with customer-centric, product-driven organizations includes numerous transformations and multiple successful exits in the Media/Publishing, Services, Technology/SaaS and other sectors. She also has deep experience in Team Development, M&A, Merger Integration and Investor Relations. She speaks frequently on Strategy Development and has taught courses on Entrepreneurship and Business Planning.

She has served on numerous for-profit and non-profit boards and has dedicated her philanthropic efforts to the protection and development of children and the unhoused populations.

Renée’s passions outside of the office include family, travel, music, and hiking.

Renée hasn’t authored any books…yet.
