Anne-Isabelle is CEO of Eleven Arches, and it is through her tenacity and passion that Eleven Arches has translated from a dream to reality.
Anne-Isabelle joined the Auckland Castle Trust in December 2012 to conduct the feasibility studies for a Puy du Fou style visitor attraction, adding over time three other of the Trust’s projects under her direction. She created Eleven Arches with Jonathan Ruffer in 2013 and in early 2014 set it up as a separate entity to further its development.
Before coming north, she had led a successful career in the City spanning more than 13 years in various senior marketing, sales and strategy roles in leading global investment banks (Goldman Sachs, UBS, Brown Brothers Harriman), including 11 years on the US Stock market.
Anne-Isabelle has an MBA from ESSEC Business School, and is a Certified Financial Analyst charter holder.
