She has a wealth of business experience and excellent contacts across the North East as a result of previous posts, which include organisations such as Finance Tree, Connect and Bridge Club.
Jane has also worked overseas, in the US and Holland.
Outside of Northstar, Jane is currently Chairwoman of the Tees Valley Business Club. She works extremely hard to connect businesses in the Tees Valley area to new opportunities, sources of funding and to each other.
