Joanne Sayer

Mclaren Academy Operations Coordinator

Joanne is McLaren Academy operations coordinator, and is based at McLaren’s Surrey headquarters. She is responsible for ensuring all the academy’s global activities run smoothly, which involves everything from organising course bookings to managing the training system.

A big part of her role involves travel bookings, which is ironic because Joanne spent many years working directly for McLaren, as part of a team managing the global travel arrangements for everybody in the company. Jo’s background is in travel, and she’s worked both with tour operators and travel agents.

In her spare time Joanne, who has two daughters, loves nothing more than walking her dog Milo, jogging and playing tennis. And she describes herself as “organised” which is perfect for her role.
