I live in: London and Oxford England

My bio: I am the CEO of Jack Wills which is a global, private equity backed fashion company. I also sit on the Board of Whitbread pls which is a FTSE 50 business that owns Costa Coffee and Premier Inn. I am active in the community as well and am the Deputy Chairman of Cancer Research UK, a Trustee on the Prince’s Trust and the English National Ballet. I also serve on the Advisory Board of Oxford’s Business School. I have worked in packaged goods and telecommunications but have spent the majority of my career since Dartmouth as a partner at McKinsey. I have an MBA from Stanford. I am married to an Italian and have two children.

I went to Dartmouth because: I applied accidentally Early Decision and got in. I thought Dartmouth was in Boston.

People are surprised that I: am very dyslexic which was not discovered until after Dartmouth.

I joined the Centennial Circle because: I think it is important that women show leadership in all sorts of ways.
