In Memoriam

The late, great Catherine Wines (Co-Founder and former Chief Operating Officer, WorldRemit) was a founding board advisor of SOS and a great friend to the JBM team. In late 2020 she sadly lost her brave battle with pancreatic cancer. We will honour her memory by trying to fulfil the promise she saw in SOS and we’re committed to supporting the COO community and championing DE&I in tech as she did throughout her incredible career. If you are interested in learning more about Catherine’s life and career, you can hear her story on JBM’s 40-Minute Mentor podcast.

“Finding Marina has been a pure highlight of 2020. In a year where candidates are a plenty and opportunities few, Marina took the time to get to know me, my skills and career in order to place me in a role quickly and efficiently. Marina is a a true partner to candidates who feel taken care of and not just a number amongst a hiring process. I look forward to continuing my career with Marina in the future!”
Charlotte Morris, VP Marketing

“Thanks for all the support and for placing this role so well. It has truly been an exceptional experience interacting with you and the SOS team over the last year. You’ve got a fantastic business and I’m sure that it will keep going from strength to strength with the various initiatives you’re driving and the team you’ve assembled.”
Steve Etherton, ex COO
