Meet Jean Nowry, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Massey Services, Inc.

Jean Nowry


Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) | Massey Services, Inc.

Since joining Massey Services in 1998, Jean Nowry, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has made a tremendous impact not only on the company, but in our community and the pest management industry as well. While she is responsible for all financial and human resource matters relating to Massey Services and its subsidiaries, Jean views her primary responsibility as ‘ensuring the financial health of the company and team members.’

She has been influential in Massey’s 37 consecutive years of profitable growth and has been instrumental in revising and enhancing the company’s 401(k) program, which currently holds a 95% participation rate and has received numerous national awards.

Jean exemplifies the “go above and beyond” approach to her work and can often be found mentoring and training team members who appreciate the time she takes to make sure they understand why operational decisions are made. Team members say Jean not only pauses to ensure a thorough understanding, but also follows-up individually to answer any additional questions. For many up-and-coming women in the company and
industry, Jean truly leads by example.

Jean also embraces the company’s Mission Statement, which includes a commitment to being a contributing member to the community. She had already been volunteering with Junior Achievement of Central Florida prior to joining Massey and continued to contribute her time to teach classes. Later, she joined the Board of Directors and held a variety of roles for several years, including Secretary and Chair. Jean has also been involved with the United Arts of Central Florida and served as their treasurer and Chair. Additionally, Jean has offered support to the Kids House of Seminole, Autism Speaks and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

Today, Jean serves as Treasurer on the Board of Directors for the Orlando Ballet. As a mother of two teenage daughters, Jean hopes to be an inspiration for women who question if it’s possible to hold a high-level executive position at a large company and also support causes you are passionate about in the community.
