In 2007, Janet was invited to form Tegris, a venture capital and asset management boutique, by a former Blackstone colleague, who had been working at Rothschild New York for 10 years. Due to market conditions in 2008, the business plan was unrealized, and Janet was asked to join New Oak Capital to assist with marketing in the US and UK in 2009, where she utilized her contacts to introduce this new entity in the marketplace.

In 2011, Steve Schwarzman invited Janet to return to Blackstone to work with David Blitzer, who had led Blackstone’s London office for 10 years and was heading up a new Tactical Opportunities Fund in New York. In 2013, Tiger Global Management, a hedge fund, recruited Janet to work with the Founder on research and to oversee his office, which she devoted herself to until December 2014.

Since 2015, Janet has headed new business development for Paris-based Studio Adrien Gardère, the award-winning museum and exhibition designer, whilst accepting consulting assignments, including with New York-based Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU), established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to further communication and peace in the world.
