Previously the Sherpa at Gravita, Pauline led the launch of the Gravita brand, supported the integration of four acquisitions in a 12-month period, and acted as Chief of Staff to CEO Caroline Plumb.
Pauline’s role is to enable connectivity, idea and knowledge sharing, and increased effectiveness across the Sherpas, Entrepreneurs Panel, Growth Team and Portfolio. Sitting across the Sherpa Programme and Entrepreneurs Panel means Pauline spends her time thinking about how Tenzing continues to uniquely deliver value to our CEOs and management teams and fulfil our ambition to bring a fresh perspective to private equity.
Originally from the US, Pauline started her career at Accenture in New York, where she focused on corporate turnarounds for established North American retailers. Once in London, her interests led her to ed-tech start-ups in emerging markets and customer-led growth consulting.
As a Sherpa alum, Pauline is hugely passionate about Tenzing and the Growth Team. She is thrilled to continue building on two highly differentiated programmes that, in her view, embody everything Tenzing is about: winning together.
To become a daring leader, take off the armour of perfectionism and jump into the fray of life. You might make mistakes in the process, but you’ll gain something valuable in exchange: the courage to succeed and lead.”– Brené Brown, from Dare to Lead
