Joanna joined Equity FD in November 2001. During her time with the business she has predominantly recruited finance directors and CFOs into private equity backed, owner managed and AIM listed businesses. In addition, Joanna has also recruited financial controllers and the occasional sales director!
Joanna enjoys recruiting across a variety of sectors, each with their own idiosyncrasies and has chosen not to specialise in any one industry. In her view the single most important factor in recruiting at this senior level, is understanding the needs of the client organisation and matching those needs with a candidate first and foremost with the right “mindset” as well as skill set. Joanna is equally comfortable working with a start up organisation through to a well established multi-million pound corporation
Previously Joanna spent 4 years recruiting accountants into the financial services sector with Michael Page Group in London.
Prior to her career in recruitment, Joanna worked in the insurance industry. Her first job was as a Lloyd’s broker with Marsh and McLennan in London, followed by 2 years in Hong Kong as an underwriter for Lombard Insurance Ltd (part of The Continental Group).
Joanna holds a BSc in Psychology from the University of Southampton and a MSc in Industrial Relations and Personnel Management from the London School of Economics and Political Science. In addition she is IPD qualified.
