She is a member of the Women’s Professional Network, the American Society of Business Publication Editors, New York Women in Communications and the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society. She is also past vice president of the Hudson Valley Early Ford V8 Club, which she joined in 2004 to carry on her father’s memory, and sometimes can be found at local car shows on weekends polishing her muscle cars.
Her first job out of college was with Standard & Poor’s, a division of McGraw-Hill/ She worked her way up, in just four years, to Managing Editor of CreditWeek, its flagship credit publication.
Jeanne’s talents took her a few blocks over to the NYSE, the world’s largest financial marketplace. There, as Director of Editorial Services, she was responsible for all executive speeches (including for a period those for then-Chairman and CEO Dick Grasso), correspondence and corporate publications, including annual reports, newsletters and NYSE Magazine, a publication she conceptualized and launched in 2000. It was designed to boost the Exchange’s brand, to build community among the NYSE-listed company family and to showcase the leadership, business and market trends shaping the broader financial community.
