Anna was delighted to take up the post of People Director at Insights in 2018, having long been an advocate of its products. She brings 20 plus years HR experience to the role, mainly in the banking and financial services sector with Royal Bank of Scotland and Aegon.
Anna’s career has seen her hold multiple leadership roles, leading teams in Europe, North America, India and South East Asia. She has gained significant experience in mergers and acquisition activity, culture development, business integration and change management. However, it is her work in leadership and personal development which she is most passionate about.
As People Director, Anna leads the Insights global People function. This role takes on extra significance when you are working in a people development company as unique as Insights. Everyone at Insights shares a burning desire to deliver on our purpose - to create a world where people truly understand themselves and others and are inspired to make a positive difference in everything that they do - and to keep on growing. We have a vision for the future of a truly global company that continues to delight it customers, its people and the community that we nurture. That is a hugely exciting challenge to lead our people through.
As well as leading the People function at Insights, Anna is a Director of the Insights Foundation and an active member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) and the Scottish HR Leaders network, regularly attending and hosting events alongside fellow practitioners. She enjoys the breadth of experience and people that she meets as well as the opportunity to share creative ideas and solutions.
Away from work Anna is a big lover of the outdoors and enjoys running and taking on muddy challenges! Her greatest pleasure is simply spending time with family, friends and her true love, her dog Sascha.
