Australia’s largest investment consulting firm, JANA, has announced a major hire as it expands its digital transformation team with the appointment of Ann-Mary Rajanayagam as Head of Technology and Operations.

JANA has increased its spend on its digital capabilities significantly in recent years, investing in and developing a set of tools, data and systems to drive deeper value and efficiencies for its clients.

Speaking on her appointment, Ashleigh Crittle, Chief Operating Officer at JANA said, “Ms Rajanayagam has an extraordinary background working for some of the world’s most dynamic financial institutions. We are hugely excited to have her on board to lead JANA’s next phase in its digital transformation agenda.

Ms Rajanayagam said, “I am so excited to be back working in the Australian financial services sector after almost a decade in the US. JANA is renowned internationally for its institutional investment capabilities. I am looking forward to leading the uplift in JANAs technology capabilities to deliver operational efficiencies and enhanced client outcomes.”
