Jocelyn Gunter, IGP, CPA. As Chief Executive Officer of ARMA International, Jocelyn Gunter blends the magic of data and the art of human relations to achieve the best possible outcomes for the membership, the association and the Information management itself.

Gunter, an IGP and CPA, with a background in Not-For-Profit Finance and Attestation, was formerly the Interim Chief Staff officer at ARMA International, and before that its Chief Financial Officer. She also serves as the President of the Just Food, Inc. Board of Directors, a local food bank.
