Dominique Highfield

Dominique is Director of Finance at Pentland Brands, a medium-size family run business that owns growing brands such as Berghaus, Speedo and Ellesse and now sits on the Pentland Brands Exec and Board. She has built and leads a high-performing team of 60 across the world and is proud to have improved the ethnic diversity across the finance function to be around 50% from ethnic minority backgrounds.

Prior to Pentland Brands, Dominique held various commercial business partnering roles – across both Sainsburys and Amazon, having completed her ACA with PwC.

Whilst it’s becoming increasingly difficult to separate home and work, particularly with more working from home – “outside of work” Dominique has a young daughter and a little boy on the way. Having in no way perfected the art of balance or the art of parenting, she is a keen advocate of breaking the bias, of leaning in and out at the right times and speaking about this with others at every opportunity!
