Our LEADERSHIP Team
Ken Jones is founder and Executive Managing Director of Lyndon Group. He oversees the company’s global operations and strategic initiatives.

Ken is proud of the Lyndon Group team and takes great strides to maintain a supportive working environment. Ken is a highly competitive individual and an avowed adrenaline junkie.
Doug Beeuwsaert is Managing Director of the Spend Management practice, and oversees all aspects of the practice, from business development to client satisfaction. Doug has been instrumental in growing Lyndon Group’s client base, which ranges from Fortune 50 companies to pre-revenue start-ups all over the world. He spends much of his time speaking with potential or current clients, or supporting Lyndon Group’s talented group of professionals. Doug is also a self-professed college football fanatic, and suffers from withdrawal symptoms during the seven-month off-season.

Kara Bernard is Lyndon Group’s Senior Director of spend management operations and all-around problem solver, combining her analytical and communication skills to target efficiencies with her clients. She loves data, but loves it even more when data and people intermingle. After joining Lyndon Group, she quickly gained the trust of the existing client base and leveraged her network to help grow the firm and help the team stay current with SAP Concur products and services. As an extremely empathic person, she often calls upon her life experiences to listen and provide advice that resonates with her clients and contacts. Kara is a big fan of nature, vintage sci-fi movies, music, and coffee (in no particular order).
Jon Stapp is the Chief Financial Officer at Lyndon Group. Jon specializes in working with clients to translate complex worksteps into more streamlined and automation-friendly processes. He loves to solve problems, and enjoys giving clients a fresh set of eyes to review their business from end to end and help them set up new processes or optimize old ones. He wants his clients to know that we will work with them through any issues that arise and provide as many solutions as possible. His favorite activity is walking, a sort of meditation for him; he walks two or three times per day while listening to his media player, especially comedian-driven podcasts and mystery/suspense audiobooks.
Brian Medenwaldt is Lyndon Group’s Director of Client Engagement. Brian collaborates with organizations to identify the pain-points associated with their spend-management programs, including their corporate travel, expense reporting and vendor payment/invoice processes. By leveraging the expert resources at Lyndon Group, he helps clients reduce costs, improve cash flow and provide greater visibility and insight into an organization’s overall spending. Brian is a rabid Minnesota Vikings fan, and has traveled far and wide to see them play in places as far as London, England. He is optimistic that he will witness a Super Bowl championship in his lifetime.
Jennifer Johnson is a Director, and she thrives on creating order out of chaos. She helps her clients streamline their processes and implement travel & expense best practices. Jennifer loves the variety and challenge that each project presents, and is especially satisfied when she can show clients there is a better, easier way to accomplish their optimization goals. For Jennifer, a job well done is enabling clients to reclaim some precious time on accomplishing their day-to-day tasks. Jennifer is a life-long travel addict, but for her the destination is not as important as the journey itself; Jennifer relishes meeting new people and seeing new things.
Oren Geshuri is a Director, and depending on the client or the situation, Oren can be a troubleshooter, a therapist, a number-cruncher, or a negotiator. After spending almost 20 years in the entertainment industry, he really enjoys the opportunity to work with companies across all industries, and getting a taste of other business sectors. As Lyndon Group’s resident nerd, he has been a steady voice encouraging the team to adopt new tools and technologies. Oren is a lifelong bookworm, and cannot fathom a world without escapist literature or incisive non-fiction.
