Jackmont Hospitality has hired Pete McKnight as their ringer on company sports teams; he also happens to be an experienced and talented Chief Financial Officer.

After graduating from Albion, Pete continued his education at the University of Dayton, where he received a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Pete joined the Jackmont Hospitality leadership team in early 2016 after spending more than 10 years with the Bistro Group, one of TGI Fridays’ largest franchisees. His career has taken him through financial management positions in software, mortgage banking and manufacturing in addition to the hospitality industry.
Pete’s favorite aspects of his job as Jackmont’s CFO involve working with his team to provide financial solutions that benefit the entire company. He gets the greatest satisfaction from identifying new efficiencies and pursuing them to completion – for Pete, nothing is more fulfilling than a completed project and a job well done.
