Ep35: Authentic Leadership Podcast – Anne Sullivan

Blog / Podcasts

Head of APAC & CEO Australia, Georg Jensen

In this episode I had the pleasure of interviewing Anne Sullivan who is the Head of Asia Pacific and CEO Australia for Georg Jensen.

About Anne Sullivan

Anne Sullivan began her retail career at upmarket department store Georges in Melbourne. It was here that she was given the opportunity to complete an Executive Retail Management program and her passion for retail grew. In 1999, Georg Jensen approached Anne to develop their retail business and she quickly identified the strong market and the Australian affinity with Danish design.

Georg Jensen Australia is the largest market outside of Scandinavia with 14 stand-alone stores. Anne was appointed Georg Jensen Australia CEO in 2009, and in 2018 was made CEO of Georg Jensen Asia Pacific.

Our Discussion

Listen in and discover how Anne went from working in her father’s petrol station to CEO. As well as what she has discovered along the way. Anne also talks about how she has learnt to back herself and believe in herself. She discusses the struggles she faced personally when the pandemic hit and how she had to adjust to a life without travel …I know that feeling too!
