The JN Group celebrated the high recognition of two of its senior executives by the United Kingdom (UK) last weekend.
Chief Executive Officer, CEO Earl Jarrett has been named on the high-profile Powerlist ranking and selected for the Global Executive Leader Award 2022. Also, Paulette Simpson, Deputy CEO of JN Bank UK, has been ranked among Britain’s top 10 most influential people of African or Caribbean heritage.
Jarrett was recognized for his visionary role in the JN Group’s presence in the UK for more than 34 years and the recent establishment of JN Bank – the only Caribbean-owned bank in Britain – among his many other notable achievements. “I am honoured to be selected for the Global Executive Leader Award for 2022 and I thank Powerful Media for this kind consideration and the London Stock Exchange for being the sponsor for this prestigious award,” Jarrett said on accepting the award and placement in this year’s ranking.
Simpson was ranked at number 8 on the Powerlist 2023 published by Powerful Media, which annually names the 100 most influential black Britons and celebrates the achievement of the most influential people of African, African-Caribbean and African-American heritage in the UK.
This is Simpson’s fourth inclusion on the Powerlist, having been ranked on the list in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. However, this is her first showing in the top 10.
