Jen Kinnear, Managing Director

"The people’s champion at Profiles Creative! A transformational leader whose passion for and understanding of people surpasses that of any other manager I have ever worked for. The skill that I admire Jen for most is her ability to persuade me to do the things that scare me, while at the same time making me think it was all my idea. She is a master of empowering her team each and every day and we are all better people as a result of her influence"

Her figures speak for themselves – she billed £300k in her first ten months at Profiles Creative, has grown freelance revenue across the business by 150%, has grown key accounts to be the biggest the company has ever worked on, and has progressed in record time from a consultant to a Director! Nicola expects a lot from herself and from her team, and her ambition for them is tangible.
