Janette Estep

VP / Controller

Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.

I’m a country music fan…

Yes, I am. I was never into country when I was younger. At least I didn’t think I was. Now that I am into modern country, I realize that all that “southern rock” I listened to in the 70’s was actually very country. I love the fiddle, the banjo, the slide guitar, any guitar actually. And I love most of the lyrics because I feel like I can relate to a lot of them. There are tons of love songs that I relate to and yes, I have been known to drink some whiskey. However, I don’t drive a truck. So here’s a little bit of the lyrics from my favorite song right now.

“Most People Are Good” by Luke Bryan, Written by: David Frasier, Ed Hill and Josh Kear

I believe most people are good

And most mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood

I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights

I believe you love who you love

Aint’ nothing you should ever be ashamed of

I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks

I believe most people are good

About Janette

Smart business woman. Stellar leader. Darn good golfer. Once you get to know Janette, you realize all three titles are quite apropos. As &Barr’s indispensable controller, Janette is responsible for all accounting and administrative functions, which demand a laser-like focus that she wields like a light saber. Not to say that Janette is all work — she loves the insanity that is advertising and is often in the very center of it. And having survived…uh…worked at &Barr since 1982, she’s sure seen her share of it. One thing is certain — her dedication is a clear testament to her love of the agency and the team members that make her smile every day. No wonder she works so hard at her job while making sure everyone has what they need to be more successful in theirs. Well, aside from the location of &Barr’s beer money stash.
