Anya Edun, Ph.D.

Vice President, People & Culture at Dart

As an Industrial and Organisational (I/O) Psychologist, Anya specialises in helping businesses achieve success by strategically focusing on the company’s greatest asset – its people.
At the start of her career, Anya assisted with the design, facilitation, and evaluation of leadership training programmes and surveys, serving as a Research Assistant at Florida International University’s (FIU) Center for Leadership in Miami, FL. Following her time at the FIU Center for Leadership, she began working internationally as a Field Trainer at Starboard Cruise Services, a Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH) company. She trained and developed staff from all corners of the globe aboard cruise ships.

Her time at Starboard exposed her to the travel retail and hospitality industry, which ultimately led her career to Cayman in 2013 as the Learning & Development Manager for Active Capital Ltd., the retail and hospitality arm of Dart.

In 2015, Anya graduated with a Ph.D. and Master’s of Science in I/O Psychology from FIU. This is the study of human behaviour in the workplace. The theories and scientific methods of psychology are applied to issues of critical relevance to business, both at the individual and organizational level, to improve the well-being and performance of people and the organizations that employ them.

Today, Anya is the Vice President, People & Culture at Dart – one of Cayman’s largest private sector entities. She provides strategic direction and oversight to the Human Resources function, leading her team, and providing services to over 400 employees across varying industries and disciplines.

When not at work, Anya spends her time with friends and family, including her 6-year-old son and 4-year-old twin girls. It is safe to say there is never a dull moment in her household.
