Gary Battles





When Gary isn’t working on company financial statements, he likes to spend his fall Saturday afternoons in Athens, Georgia watching the Bulldogs with family & friends. “Opening day is a state holiday on my calendar,” he jokes. The Georgia/Florida game is standard vacation time as well: the family packs up their RV and heads down to Gator country to watch the game and see old friends.

After following those fundamental rules, Gary becomes the friendly controller at JOYN and approaches every task with a commitment to discipline and high standards. He manages the accounting and finance departments, advises leadership on financial strategy, sits on the JOYN Board of Advisors, and participates in the JOYN team of department managers.

Before joining JOYN, Gary spent his career as a financial executive working in senior positions with distinguished companies such as Glaxo SmithKline, Cendant/Colwell Banker, RE/MAX, and the Mirant Corporation.


His long list of favorite activities includes camping with his family and coaching his son’s little league teams. He has also been a life-long skier, scuba diver and occasional explorer of underwater caves.
