Director – GPS Operations EMEA at Google.
While I worked at HP Ann was the HR manager responsible for supporting the start-up operation I was responsible for. I found Ann to be both smart and very hard working. She is very intuitive and able to see the bigger picture. She helped me to handle many potentially difficult situations and played a full and significant role in my team as well as HR. I can highly recommend Ann\‘s work and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again in future.
Catalyst (SAP) business lead at Fonterra Brands.
At HP, Ann went from a direct report to a peer colleague as HR Manager when I moved into C&B where I watched her grow into a highly valued HR leader and trusted business partner. Her HR knowledge & competence are a given, however it was her ability to influence widely & regularly which set her apart. She works extremely hard, balances business perspective with employee impact and is not afraid to tackle difficult issues. I would welcome working with Ann again & recommend her emphatically to anyone lucky enough to have her as part of the team.

She was an integral part of the support & services team and represented the interests of the facility to great effect in both Europe & the US.
