Founding Partner & Strategic Advisor To The Group
Local Sponsor in Dubai
Jenny started working life in the UK as an Editorial Co-ordinator in a publishing house and then moved into Account Management roles in advertising. At night school she studied the practitioner’s communications, advertising and marketing course, CAM Foundation (since amalgamated into the Chartered Institute of Marketing), achieved a Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing and studied a Masters in Marketing, achieving the highest marks the university had ever awarded, at that time, for the coursework.
In 2009 Jenny moved to the UAE to be with her fiancé and get married in early-2010.
Witnessing the difficulties organizations experienced when setting up in the UAE, including wrong license, empty promises, no exit strategy, stuck in exclusivity contracts and having uncooperative local sponsors, Jenny identified a need for no-nonsense, transparent and well-communicated services. In 2014, Gateway was established to help companies set up correctly whilst mitigating the risks; and, to organize visas to get their staff on the ground quickly to meet their contractual obligations.
Since then, Gateway has won multiple awards, the most recent being: Most Client-Focused Company Formation Specialists - UAE from MEA Markets (March 2021).
Jenny herself has received numerous awards including CEO Today Middle East's Business Award, three years running and creating one of the Top 25 Blogs To Follow In Abu Dhabi.
