Jo has a broad track record of supporting Private Equity backed, Privately-owned and PLC businesses at board and executive leadership level in the UK and internationally. Providing her clients with diversity of thought and leadership, that meet both immediate and long-term business objectives, she has enabled sustainable and competitive outcomes. In addition, Jo has an extensive track record in Consumer Operations and Supply Chain with a strong bias towards the ESG agenda including B-Corp, ethical, transparent and sustainable supply chains.

A Hospitality Management graduate, Jo worked with some of the best chefs of our time including-Albert, Michel Roux & Michel Roux Jnr, Anton Edelman, and Raymond Blanc. This led her to work at the Sydney 2000 Olympics as a Distribution Manager. The move to executive search was driven by her exposure at the Olympics where she experienced at first-hand, how organisations and cultures can excel through the positive impact made by the right leaders.
Jo’s driven by her passion to make a positive difference to business effectiveness, change and transformation by finding immediately available purpose-led expertise that can both effect change from day one and leave a positive long-term legacy for the business.
