Biography:

Jane comes to Search & Consulting after a stellar international career as a senior lawyer, in the course of which she accumulated numerous leadership roles and functions, including head of Commercial & Outsourcing at Wragge & Co, a leading UK law firm (now Gowling) where she was also elected onto the Management Committee. 

Known for her trailblazing activity and innovative approach to major projects, she established and led the firm’s ‘Aerospace & Defence’ sector group, the firm’s first sector group. She later launched and spearheaded the firm’s Middle East presence to become Managing Partner & Head of Healthcare UAE.

Jane brings an appropriately global intercultural experience and understanding to an organisation like Signium, having lived and worked in the UK, in Europe and the Gulf. She also brings outstanding leadership and management skills, as well as exceptional understanding of her clients’ challenges and pressure points. 

Over the course of her legal career, Jane has partnered with senior legal and executive management in both the public and private sectors and her focus at Signium will be to channel that experience onto the in-house legal sector, bringing her advisory, consultative approach to assist corporates in the growth and retention of their in-house legal offering across the globe.

Her natural interest in people growth and development transfers seamlessly into a people-centric service offering. Jane has honed her mentoring and coaching skills throughout her career and is often held up as a role model, having succeeded in traditionally male-oriented sectors and jurisdictions. She will be applying positive psychology principles in her coaching activity, having recently completed the leading ‘Positive Psychology in Coaching’ course at New Bucks University.  

In her spare time, Jane has established an award-winning boutique luxury hotel in Marrakech, and renovated a farmhouse in France.
