Wendy joined JTC in 2008 to head up the HR function of the Group before becoming Group COO at the time of CBPE Capital’s investment in 2012 at which time she was appointed to the Group Holdings Board, followed by an Executive Director appointment to the PLC board in 2019.
Wendy has almost 35 years’ experience in financial services operations and HR, having previously worked at Mourant Ozannes (formerly Mourant) and Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) in Jersey.
As Chief Operating Officer, she is responsible for evaluating and developing the operational strategy of the Group to ensure it builds the operational capabilities to support its growth prospects and deliver its financial targets. An essential element of Wendy’s role also includes leading acquisition integration projects to enable harmonisation of acquired businesses.
In her capacity as Executive Director to the PLC Board, Wendy facilitates employee representation, an approach recognised under the UK Corporate Governance Code and one that aligns with JTC’s well-developed stakeholder culture.
In 2022 Wendy was appointed as JTC’s first Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) which, in addition to her existing position as COO, plays a key role in bringing together JTC’s obligations as a responsible London Stock Exchange-listed business to develop and evolve our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework based on the Group’s purpose and cultural values.
Sitting on both JTC’s Plc and Group Holding Boards, Wendy ensures that our operational and ESG objectives are fully integrated with the Group’s strategic decision making.
