Juanita Wrenn

Managing Director
  • Bachelor Of Commerce major in Finance
  • Graduate Diploma of Financial Planning

Juanita began working at Hudson in 2000 as a Financial Adviser. Prior to this Juanita worked for WB Financial Management, the National Australia Bank and Suncorp. Juanita still has fond memories of so many of her members back 20 years ago and has often checked in with the other advisers on their financial journey.

In 2004 Juanita left Hudson to bring up her four children, but stayed on at Hudson on the Board of Directors. In 2017, the opportunity to become Director/Secretary was there and fast forward to the beginning of 2020 and Juanita is now the Managing Director at Hudson. The most satisfying aspect of this change is the ability to be back involved with decisions affecting Hudson’s clients and decisions affecting the staff, some of whom Juanita has known almost 20 years. It is a challenging time in the financial planning industry with so many legislative changes and consequent changes taking place. Juanita is grateful for her amazing team by her side supporting each other navigating not only industry changes but market and economic changes in the post COVID environment.
