    Jane Rankin, Partner at Rankin Dowse

    Jane Rankin

    Starting her career in 1983 at Saatchi & Saatchi, Jane worked on the account management side of the agency world for ten years, moving from Saatchi to BMP DDB and on to Lowe Howard-Spink. Across the decade Jane worked with some of the most respected people in the industry, as well as for many famous client companies from Unilever through Rowntree Mackintosh, Lloyds Bank and COI to IDV and Kia-Ora.

    In 1994 Jane joined Gay Haines at Kendall Tarrant with the brief to establish a new division specialising in the rapidly-growing direct marketing industry – which quickly expanded to incorporate the digital world which was on the verge of exploding. The integrated communications division became the top provider of talent to the industry. She worked with many of the major advertising agencies to help them build their own integrated agencies from scratch, bringing together teams of individuals with very different yet complementary backgrounds, skills and attitudes to form formidable alliances.

    Jane re-joined Gay in 2010 at Grace Blue as a Partner and established and grew the direct, CRM, digital practice and integrated practice over the next five years.  In March this year she set up her own search company Rankin Dowse with her former colleague Liz Dowse.   The focus of the business is leadership roles in the CRM and digital industry.
