While we celebrate during Women’s History Month, our team continues to shine a spotlight on current trailblazers in industry. Meet Janet Jessen! Janet went from being a Vice President of Global Marketing, Innovation and Engineering with Garlock Sealing Technologies to become the President of her own Consulting, Marketing, and Business Development company in 2013.
Leading a successful company, she thinks back upon her humble beginnings…”For me, foreign language was the key. I had been hired because of my proficiency in Spanish to work with customers in Latin America. Within 2 years, I had traveled to every country in Latin America and was training customers and distributors on the Science of Sealing,” shares Janet.
“I am most proud of being a marketer who eventually led a large customer-focused engineering team as well as a marketing team. I am also very proud of launching my own consulting business, which as a second career has become the most satisfying part of my work life.”
