She has strong track record of delivering business-focused employee reward, performance management, recognition, mobility, and diversity and inclusion programmes internationally. Cross culturally agile with a global mind-set, Jane has worked in over 50 geographies including her native US, Europe and Asia.
Jane’s experience began in the US working for internet pioneers such as AOL, Netscape and Yahoo! With the merger of AOL and Time Warner she started to work extensively in Europe, fuelling her passion for working cross-culturally to optimise outcomes for all parties.
She then moved to McDonald’s, where she was the first Reward Director in Europe, building the function from the ground up.

Her passion is building cultural bridges and creating workplaces where individuals can come be their authentic selves.
