Monday, February 12th 2018, 3:02PM

Harbour Asset Management has appointed Linda Jenkinson, serial entrepreneur, global business leader and philanthropist, to its board of directors.

“Harbour recognises the importance of innovation and new ideas in a quickly changing industry. We are delighted to have Linda on board to help us continue developing, particularly in the area of client experience” said Andrew Bascand, managing director.

Jenkinson, the first New Zealand woman to list a company on the NASDAQ stock exchange, co-founded DMSC, a $250 million on-demand courier company which disrupted the courier on-demand business segment. She also co-founded John Paul (formerly LesConcierges), a global customer and employee experience platform which she sold to Accor Hotel Group and WOW for Africa, an organisation that provided investment and business advisory services to support and promote female entrepreneurship in Senegal.

She currently serves on the boards of directors of Air New Zealand, Eclipx Group, the Guild Group and the Massey Foundation. She was named EY Master Entrepreneur of the Year NZ in 2013, World Class New Zealander in 2016, and has been recognised at the Women of Influence awards in San Francisco and New Zealand.

Jenkinson was previously a Partner with A.T. Kearney, specialising in financial institutions and strategic sourcing. She holds an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and a B.B.S in Accounting & Finance and Data Processing from Massey University.

“Linda has founded, developed and led substantial businesses, and her experience as an entrepreneur, global financial services consultant, and professional director will be invaluable to us as we continue our growth as a successful client-focussed investment manager. We are extremely pleased to have Linda join our board and look forward to her contributions”, said Graeme Wong, chairman of Harbour.
