Job title: Marketing and Research Director
Date joined: August 2010
Role: Jenny's job is to attract and engage with customers, both borrowers and other mortgage brokers. Attracting customers involves promoting the Mortgages for Business brand both off and online. So if you've contacted us because you've read about us in the press, seen an advert or used a search engine, then it's likely that Jenny had a hand in your journey to our door.
A strategic thinker with 20 years business and marketing experience, Jenny believes that our customers make wiser finance decisions when they have access to the right information. That is why we communicate not just the latest buy to let mortgage rates but also detailed market research and insight across both the residential and commercial property investment finance sectors.
In addition to heading up the marketing function and working closely with Amy Earl and Zoe Podesta, Jenny is a member of the senior management team.
Experience: Jenny left university with BA Hons in Fine Art and Geography and quickly realised that drawing maps for a living wasn't going to float her boat job-wise. Before joining Mortgages for Business, Jenny’s career spanned a broad range of industries including financial services, software, publishing and training. She has worked for both international corporations and start-up businesses.
Results driven, her key skills are understanding the bigger picture and being able to communicate relevant and cohesive businesses messages to all stakeholders across multiple channels.
When her children were small, Jenny took a break from corporate life but still found time to buy, renovate, open and subsequently sell a 5-star guest house. Black Rock House remains one of Hastings' most popular B&Bs.
When not hanging out with her family, Jenny sings in an a capella folk trio called Little Roc. She also volunteers for an arts partnership programme which aims to bring cultural events to the rural community in which she lives.
New Year's Resolutions:
To learn to play the harmonica
To re-learn the geological timescale
