Who We Are
Ann Greenhaw

Ann has enjoyed a 32 year career at Franklin Templeton Investments in the HR Area.  Ann’s beginning at Franklin Templeton was a “return to work” into the corporate world when she was over the age of 40!  She selected Franklin Templeton after researching their culture and commitment to career development.  While Ann was afforded the opportunity to grow and develop within the HR department in various areas, her passion was in recruitment.  As a Senior Recruiter, she has successfully worked with most of the departments within Franklin Templeton and is proud of the many hires she has facilitated.  Ann feels her success in recruitment is greatly attributed to her goal to put candidates at ease during an interview to better find out more about them as a “person” and have them better convey their skills as they pertain to their desired position.  Ann has enjoyed the opportunity to represent Franklin Templeton at many Phase2 events over the years.
