Louise Reed

Managing Director

I currently oversee the day-to-day operations of the CML Group of companies. In this capacity, I work closely with the management committee to coordinate and drive the Group’s strategy development and operational effectiveness. Here in the Nova office, I focus on creating purpose, elevating our values, cultivating career passion, and buying office snacks (which consist mainly of chocolate).

My HR and Recruitment career has spanned 20+ years, where I started as a Recruiter and Manager in the UK’s fast-paced commercial search and selection industry, later spending eight years managing our sister company CML’s Financial Services recruitment. My successes have allowed me to expand the CML Group with the founding of both Nova Recruitment in 2016 and, most recently, Connect by Nova in 2020, focusing on career development and training for the local community in Cayman.

Why do you love your work?
Working with people, seeing them achieve their goals, mentoring, and supporting the Cayman community.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
Forensic Pathologist. I even did work experience in a morgue, but then I realized I faint really easily especially if I see blood, so I decided to stick to working with people, just living ones.

If you were an animal, what would you be?
Fierce as a lion, friendly as a dolphin, and independent like a cat…seriously, I have no idea I just googled that.
