Britt's original career plan was to become an English professor specialising in early 20th century literature, so after spending fifteen years in a variety of senior roles in Financial Services, she was thrilled to return to the Education sector in 2019 equipped with strategic relationship management skills polished in the City of London. Family, Philanthropy, and Community are Britt's top priorities, and as the proud parent of a young Stortfordian, she has the future of Bishop's Stortford College very firmly in her heart.
Emma graduated with a Business Management degree and went on to work in management consultancy and corporate business. Over the last twenty years, her business experience has included operations, product development, organisational change, leadership development, marketing and communications, and procurement. Having been responsible for a £200m business operation in an FTSE 100, Emma has first-hand experience of running national organisations. After taking a break to have her two boys Emma moved into consultancy working for the Cabinet Office on a commercial programme across all government departments.

As Commercial Manager Emma is responsible for non-fee income and hopes to deliver several exciting opportunities for the College. Emma is passionate about business and thoroughly enjoys seeing an idea come to life!
