The former educator notes that one of Vemco’s greatest contributions to national development is latent in the company’s foundation as a family business: the importance it places on family – fostering a warm corporate culture hallmarked by respect, care and work-life balance.
Jenny believes that at Vemco, they really try to foster a family atmosphere and a positive attitude. An attitude of opportunity that, yes, we can get better; and we can grow. She thinks that as a society, we can get bombarded by the negatives and must focus on the positive as it is the first step to driving development.
