Jenny Rodgerson

General Manager Finance, Whitbread Insurance Brokers | Director, Whitbread Life

With more than 25 years’ experience as a senior finance manager, Jenny has been steering and safeguarding Whitbread’s financial performance for more than a decade.

Specialising in auditing and insurance finance, Jenny brings a wealth of experience to her stewardship of Whitbread’s finance team, gained through work with major finance consultancies and corporations.

Jenny views financial information as a tool for empowering the business – empowering staff to better understand their portfolios and empowering Whitbread’s leaders to make informed strategic decisions.

With exceptional skills in analysing and communicating financial information, Jenny has helped position finance as a key driver of Whitbread’s business strategy.

Her introduction of new financial reporting and analysis systems, focused on identifying key areas of profitability, has seen significant reductions in business costs and has ensured key financial information is readily available and safeguarded.

Seemingly in contrast to her finance role, Jenny is also an accomplished professional artist whose work has been exhibited around Australia.

Jenny credits these artistic pursuits with the creativity and clarity she brings to her work at Whitbread.

Bringing a balanced and holistic view to her role, Jenny applies an artistic mind and what she terms ‘boundary-less thinking’ to analysing Whitbread’s financial performance and seeking ways to improve the business.

As part of Whitbread’s leadership team, Jenny plays a central role in planning the business’ strategic direction and helping set its course to be an organisation genuinely driven by values.

Jenny played a strategic role in the establishment of Whitbread Life in 2014 and is a Director of that entity.

Passionate about community engagement, Jenny also actively supports a number of animal welfare and local community charities.

Jenny is a qualified Chartered Accountant, has a Bachelor of Commerce, a Bachelor of Fine Arts VCA and a Graduate Diploma in Environmental Science.
