Jenny Rae Le Roux

Management consultant

Professional Profile

Looking to make connections with the tech industry, Jenny Rae Le Roux moved to California more than a decade ago from Atlanta, where she worked for the global management consulting firm Bain & Co. Because she wanted to maintain a more rural lifestyle, Le Roux settled outside Redding, where she lives with her family on a 181-acre farm. Since then, she has helped build several businesses and, in 2012, purchased Management Consulted, which provides interview and resume prep for university students and corporate training services. She also graduated from Columbia Business School in 2018.

Frustrated by California’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and what she considered to be poor planning by the state, Le Roux jumped into politics last year during the recall election against Gov. Gavin Newsom. She ultimately finished 29th among replacement candidates, receiving about 16,000 votes. But Le Roux is making another run for governor as a “pro-business fiscal conservative,” and so far, she has significantly outraised every other challenger to Newsom, other than Republican state Sen. Brian Dahle.

Update: Le Roux did not advance to the November general election.
