Who is JC Fonfreyde?
JC has had a diverse career: a solid background in multinationals where he honed his HR skills; the development of trade and links between India and France in fast-paced Mumbai; an exciting detour via a start-up company to fulfill his interest in innovation and technology; a jump to consulting where he partnered with Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies on Reward and Organisational Development projects. The common thread has been his focus on people, on creating sustainable foundations and on working with energy and fun.
In 2016, he joined Wellcome Trust, to look after the reward side of this high-impact organisation, that supports medical research around the world, develops the brightest minds and attracts the incurably curious. It is still undergoing a period of growth that brings exciting opportunities and challenges to the People function and of course to Reward.
