Jay Norris

Jay began his auditing career at Ernst & Young, where he worked on clients in various industries, including oil & gas, healthcare, high tech, hedgefunds, manufacturing and services. While at MaloneBailey, Jay has become one of the leaders in oil and gas and biotech/pharmaceutical accounting, as well as accounting for embedded derivatives and share-based compensation. Currently, Jay's client base is made up of oil and gas, oilfield services, biotech/pharmaceutical, real estate and high tech companies.

In addition to his Big 4 experience, Jay has held controllership positions with Worldwide Flight Services, Calpine Corporation and KBR, Inc. As a corporate controller, Jay’s role included SEC compliance, SOX implementation and accounting research, among other day-to-day responsibilities. In addition, Jay oversaw the preparation of KBR’s initial registration statement on Form S-1 and subsequent amendments.

Jay is an active member of the National Investment Banking Association and serves as Chair of the organization's Marketing Committee.

When Jay’s not working, he’s still quite busy with his family, chasing his kids to their sporting and social events and spending time with them at local attractions — the Renaissance Festival and Schlitterbahn are some of his favorites! Jay enjoys traveling abroad and offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Jay’s approach is impressive to say the least."
