Jenna is Director at LCA and a member of the agency’s management team. Since joining LCA in 2008, she has led a number of strategic briefs including public consultation and engagement on one of Europe’s biggest regeneration projects, Brent Cross Cricklewood, and stakeholder engagement and media relations for one of the biggest and most complex NHS reorganisations ever undertaken in the UK. Jenna is working on some truly exciting projects at the moment including delivering communications and strategic advice for Enfield Council’s £6bn Meridian Water regeneration scheme and helping to promote Alexandra Palace’s major East Wing restoration project.
As well as counselling clients, Jenna heads LCA’s research team and is the lead editor of LCA’s award-winning news magazine LDN – London in Short. These roles help to ensure the agency is one step ahead when it comes to local, regional and national politics and London news and issues. This function is crucial to our clients who want to be in the know before anyone else and to the LCA team who pride themselves on being experts in the capital. Jenna is also building her experience as a speaker and chair at industry events and conferences, primarily talking about London politics and planning issues.
Other highlights of Jenna’s LCA career so far include working on the London Elects campaign to drive up voter turnout for the 2012 Mayoral and London Assembly elections and helping Peabody Housing Trust to craft and promote a programme in celebration of its 150th anniversary. Jenna has also provided strategic corporate communications advice for Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (owner of three Olympic venues in legacy as well as 10,000 acres of park) and London and Continental Railways and has worked with Gatwick Airport, Tesco, St George, Film London, Access and many others.
Before LCA, Jenna worked as a Corporate Communications Manager for Reuters, writing and publishing internal news, planning events and helping to execute the communications strategy around the Thomson Reuters merger.
Jenna has spent most of her life in the capital, leaving only to complete a BA in English Literature at Cambridge University and, more recently, to spend three months in New York City just to make sure it wasn’t any better than London.
Jenna likes reading, cooking and eating and enjoys nothing more than when these activities are combined. When not concerned with Shepherd's Pie and the great American novel her impressively sized family take up a great deal of her time (mostly in a nice way).
