Jenne Hartmann joins the JB team as School Sales Manager

As we continue to increase our presence in to the school library market we are delighted to welcome Jenne Hartmann to the James Bennett team.

As our Schools Sales Manager, Jenne will be working closely with our school librarians to ensure their ordering process is as efficient as possible, as well as establishing their relationships with our partner products, in particular, Story Box Library.

A qualified librarian, Jenne is a dedicated information services professional with nearly 20 years’ experience working with libraries across Australia and New Zealand implementing strategies delivering productivity, sustainability and, most importantly, customer satisfaction.

She brings to James Bennett a wealth of experience in the information sector and a passion for the opportunities for life-long learning afforded by the intersection of users, communities, content, and technology.

Jenne has experience spanning every facet of the information sector including publishing, library supply, and software development, across every medium.  With her sound knowledge of the education sector, Jenne looks forward to assisting school libraries across Australia and New Zealand inspire their students with a love of literacy and learning, and in their endeavours to deliver high quality services with associated educational outcomes.

Jenne is the mother of two energetic boys and therefore knows more about Minecraft and Pokemon than she needs to (!!). She was thankful to be introduced to the joys of authors such as Pamela Allen, Mem Fox, Julia Donaldson, Jackie French, Aaron Blabey, Jeff Kinney and David Walliams, while sharing her love of Dr Seuss, Enid Blyton, JK Rowling, JR Tolkien (and hopefully Austen and Dickens soon!).  When she has the time (!!!), Jenne enjoys her volunteer work, cooking, writing, reading, and the peacefulness of a long walk!
