Jana Thompson


SUPERPOWER // Shape shifting chaos into organised efficiency!

Jana joined our team in April 2021 to take on the task of Business Manager.  Bringing with her a Diploma in Finance Broking as well as an extensive 12-year background working in the asset finance industry with the last 10 of those years as the office and operations manager at one of Australia’s largest stand-alone broking firms.  Safe to say that we are in very safe hands with Jana looking over our teams and our business.

Prior to working in the industry, Jana was a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer having trained and performed in Australia, the USA and Asia!  She once worked for Disney and played a Space Ranger from a popular children’s movie franchise, and a Princess with a Beast of an issue. Can you guess which characters she played?

Jana’s colleagues would describe her as bubbly and energetic! She is always willing to lend a hand, fix an issue, and step up to a challenge when needed. Her favourite part of her role so far is learning all about the different services the Canny Group provides, as well as getting to meet all our lovely clients.

Professionally Jana strives to continue to learn, grow and achieve in every way possible when it comes to her work as well as being the best at what she does!  On a personal level, Jana’s goal is to be able to do an unassisted pull up at the gym and to be able to retire at a young enough age and with enough money to have endless travel opportunities wherever she wants.

When Jana isn’t busy managing our business, you can find her out amongst nature, cooking for family and friends, at a live music concert, theatre show, or at the footy!
