A Little About our Executive Team
My name is Jeanette Johnston and I am the Vice President of BWB. My role is to organize speakers for our lunches; to liase with charities; to fill in for the President when she is away and other various duties. My everyday job is as the Business Development Coordinator at the Leeds Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre. We support entrepreneurs in starting and growing or exiting their businesses. I have a long history with the BWB and am very happy to be supporting this group on the Executive Level. It will be a fun year of learning and networking!
I am a Financial Planner, Investment Retirement Planner with RBC in Brockville. I will be celebrating 30 years with RBC in August 2020. My husband, Rob and I, with our children Mitchell and Mara live in Brockville and love to support local. I have been involved with Brockville Women in Business since January 2018 and have been on the executive since June 2018. I am responsible for Logistics. I work closely with Brockville Country Club by planning the meals, along with ensuring we have enough sponsors each month to round out the great experience we have each month.
I am a Certified Software Quality Engineer, working remotely, with a financial services company in Toronto. I worked in this capacity for American Express and CIBC in the past. I have several other businesses that I do on a part time basis, once of which you hear me speak of during our meeting, ACN and its Xoom Energy Product. I have been involved with the Brockville Women in Business since 2010 and am currently Treasurer for the Group. I work closely with the Executive team to be sure they know what funds we have and where they are spent so that we provide the best events to our members at a reasonable cost.
.A little about me coming soon.
