New Zealand Rugby Union CFO Tells Here Of Her Corporate World Journey

Who says rugby only revolves around men? Particularly when the chief financial officer for New Zealand Rugby Union is a woman!

From the tough corporate turf to managing rugby finance. It’s truly a journey with challenges. Jannine Mountford believes she has conquered them all.

Ms Mountford shared her inspiring journey with women in leadership roles in Fiji through the Women in Business networking breakfast yesterday at the Grand Pacific Hotel.

She said: “I could be a woman who enjoys cooking and gardening but I can also be a leader of an organisation with strong focus.

“It is all about setting goals and making sure you are comfortable with who you are.”

She said in the corporate world, it is important to have a sponsor for yourself, someone who can actually understand you and what strengths you can bring to the organisation.

“Partnership is important! You can make alliances and not enemies with those you whom you share ‘some’ interests with.”

 

Challenges

Ms Mountford explained there are many challenges in all journeys but it is important to push through.

“It is important to just know what goal you ‘ve actually got in your vision and keep moving towards it. There are road blocks but you just need to push pass it and move forward,” she stressed.

“If things are not feeling right perhaps it is the organisation you are working for and you just need to move on and find a place that matches your values. Being comfortable where you work is vital.”

 

Fiji’s Growth

Ms Mountford said there were so many inspiring women in Fiji.

“This has been an amazing group of women here for Fiji Women in Business.

“This is such an amazing mixture of diversity of women and I think it is fantastic,” she added

“The women in Fiji just need to keep pushing and working towards their voices being heard.”
