Chair of JANA, Fiona Dunn, welcomed the two new additions to the JANA board. “We are delighted to announce the appointments of Margie Seale and Tracy Ah Hee to our board of directors. Between them, they are two of Australia’s most respected professionals in their disciplines and bring a unique range of knowledge and expertise to JANA.

 

“Ms Seale has extensive experience in companies undergoing change as well as both managing and governing complex organisations. Her proven business acumen and decision-making through economic cycles and market disruption will be invaluable as JANA looks to help clients increase their competitive edge and navigate complex investment landscapes.

 

“Ms Ah Hee has been at the forefront of technological changes and data analytics for more than three decades and will be pivotal in supporting JANA’s ongoing digital transformation program to optimise client performance and scale our business.”

 

“JANA is committed to fostering diversity of thought, which has consistently underpinned decision-making, helped drive positive client outcomes and shape long-term sustainable growth.  

 

“In Ms Seale and Ms Ah Hee, we are privileged to welcome individuals who bring expertise from working across a wide range of industries. Their addition to the board strengthens our position as we continue to support clients in managing risk and attaining strong, sustainable investment outcomes.”

Speaking on her new role, Ms Ah Hee said, “Rapid technology innovations, increasing focus on data security and more sophisticated customer demands have made it very complex for companies to achieve profitable growth. I am looking forward to applying my expertise in data, analytics, digital and customer transformation to JANA and our clients.”

 

Ms. Seale and Ms. Ah Hee will begin their positions on September 7, 2023. They will be joining Fiona Dunn, who serves as the Chair and non-executive director, along with Jim Lamborn and John Coombe, both of whom hold executive director roles on the JANA Investment Advisers Pty Ltd Board.
