As the former COO for the Group, I recruited Jeanette to assist us at a critical point for our HR function – we had just migrated our entire operations to Gibraltar, we were in the middle of a big recruitment campaign, our previous HR Controller had left and the rest of the HR department had the worst turnover rate.
Not only did Jeanette stabilize the situation, within weeks we had a functioning HR unit. What differentiated Jeanette was her approach – when others talked theory, Jeanette immediately detailed the required actions. She was quick to understand and come up with useful suggestions. I really enjoyed working with Jeanette and certainly learned from her experience and insights.

I reported directly to Jeanette at Mexx and Mayborn, respectively, during challenging periods for the businesses as a whole and for the HR departments specifically. Jeanette is an inspirational and highly motivating team leader. Her vast senior-level HR experience, unwaveringly high energy levels and her strong, supportive leadership inspired confidence from both her HR team and the wider business.
Jeanette has a real commercial, pragmatic focus and a clear understanding of HR's role in driving business performance. As a result of her leadership, HR was elevated from a largely reactive, back-office, transactional, support function to a strategic business partner, valued by and engaged with the business. She is also great fun - an absolute blast to work for!
