Season 6

Jo Bennett is the tough CEO of Sabre, and first meets Michael Scott after he tries to tell Gabe to talk to her. She yells at Michael and tells him that he should think about his future at the company. She claims that Dunder Mifflin was the most mismanaged company she has ever seen. ("Sabre") She makes Gabe do everything, include catching her coat, and is in love with her dogs. She has wrote an autobiography, is a breast cancer survivor, but is tough and calls Michael and Jim "grown ass men," when they keep changing their minds about the regional manager job. She is funny. ("Manager and Salesman") She seems sweet, however, she has a mean side to her and snaps at Michael (although he was asking for it). She doesn't let the office go to the St. Patrick's Day party, and works hard. Her dogs are in commercials. She does redeem herself, though, and says that she will enjoy her professional relationship with Michael. ("St. Patrick's Day")
