Jenny Schwanke

Senior Accountant

Office: Fond du Lac, WI

Focus: Balancing cash for the company daily, preparing and posting deposits, sales tax returns, monthly intercompany tie-outs. Monthly preparation of financials and balance sheet reconciliation of Commonwealth Management Company books along with additional tasks.

Experience: Prior to joining Commonwealth, Jenny worked for a commercial printing company for 24 years, working in the accounting department in many different capacities, including managing the accounts receivable department. She received her Associate’s degree in Accounting from Moraine Park Technical College.

Fun Stuff: Jenny is the youngest of 7 children. She has two adult sons, Jacob and Jordan, and recently moved to West Bend with her boyfriend Luke and his daughter Stella. Together, they have two rescue pets – their cat Jax and dog Buddy who is a German shepherd mix that they rescued from Texas.

Commonwealth is: an employer where ownership cares about and takes care of its people, which has made my transition here much easier than I could have wished for. I enjoy being part of this new family.

Commonwealth has been extremely professional and courteous to the staff and the residents still living in our facility. They exceeded our expectations during the construction project as well as during the renovation of a 1923 school. Both projects have turned out to be beautiful and successful for our community.
