Our mission is to play a leading role for East Kent in developing the economic and social prosperity of the diverse communities we serve.
As a member of the Ashford Economic Development Group (AEDG), a Director of RIFT Social Enterprise and a Director of Kennedys Accounting, Annette has a wide-ranging background that encompasses banking and business management, development and support.
Her career has seen her working with numerous companies over the years, applying her hard-won practical and realistic approach to everything from energetic start-ups to Community Interest Companies.
Her expertise is both broad-based and intensive and features the vital first-hand experience of establishing and developing a successful company required to fully understand the need to work on – and not just in – a business.
Away from work, Annette’s other successful and fast-growing projects have included two now-adult children and an unconventionally three-legged cat.
Passionate about people, talent and innovative enterprise, she’s excited to have this opportunity to support the college, the community and both new and existing businesses.
