Chief Executive, Pearl and Dean


Kathryn Jacob

I have worked in many areas of media, giving me broad experience. I really enjoy working within creative environments and developing the teams I work with. I’ve been lucky that my career has enabled me to work at some iconic brands and allowed me to fiddle about with them. In 2016 the book I co-authored “The Glass Wall-success strategies for women at work and businesses that mean business” was published by Profile. Since then, Sue Unerman and I have spoken at many events and this led to the writing and publication of another book in 2020 called ” Belonging: The Key to Transforming and Maintaining Diversity, Inclusion and Equality at Work” which we wrote with Mark Edwards.

As well as those aspects of my life, I sit on the Development Board of RADA, the Board of AOC Sport, The Council and Board of the Advertising Association and the Executive Board of SAWA, which represents screen advertising companies worldwide. I am the very proud Chair of HOME Manchester, an iconic arts venue.
