Gillian Kent

Non-Executive Director

Gillian joined the Key Group board in September 2018 bringing with her a wealth of marketing, digital and c-suite experience across a broad range of sectors.  Most recently this included roles as Chief Executive of real estate portal Propertyfinder, and as Managing Director of MSN UK – as part of a fifteen-year career with Microsoft.

In addition to Key Group, she currently holds non-executive director roles at Mothercare, Ascential, NAHL Group plc and SIG plc and with two other private high growth companies, Portswigger and Howsy. Gillian is also on the expert advisory board for the 4th National Lottery licence competition and was a Non-Executive Director of Pendragon PLC until April 2019.

Having worked for a wide range of organisations across different sectors, I know how important it is to build a business around real customer needs, focus on good consumer outcomes and look to innovate as you do so.  This is something that Key Group values and truly understands. I look forward to working with the rest of the board and wider colleagues to continue to deliver against these ambitions.
