As Chief People Officer for the Pax8 EMEA region my role is to ensure we keep humans at the heart of our growth. I develop the vision and strategy to maintain and scale an inclusive, high-performance culture built on servant leadership, psychological safety and genuine community. My mission is nothing short of empowering every Pax8er to do the best works of their lives here. I came to a career in tech via a degree in History from the University of Cambridge, believing the Internet to be the Guttenberg Press of the 21st Century. I have worked in global corporates and small start-ups and occupied a variety of leadership roles across marketing, business operations and most recently people. In 2021 I was honoured to receive the CompTIA Advancing Women in Technology Leadership Award. A fun fact about me: I am an unashamed analogue book nerd and love hunting through secondhand bookshops. I am currently building up a collection of original Penguin Classics.
