Kate brings deep expertise working with Boards, CEOs and C-Suite Executives across multiple industries, including a strong focus on the Media, Digital, Telecoms and Technology sectors where she has partnered with and advised individuals and organisations facing significant change.

With over 20 years’ experience working at the top level of international businesses, Kate has developed trusted, long lasting relationships with senior executives as they evolve, drive and shape their own careers and leadership capabilities. She brings an authentic, pragmatic and empathetic approach to her work, coupled with strong business insight and an innate understanding of how individuals are motivated, both independently and as leaders or members of senior teams.

Kate has worked across multiple industries and disciplines at the most senior levels, thereby bringing a broad business understanding and currency in how leaders are having to constantly adapt their approach to leading and effectively navigating constant transformation and business evolution, both from a cultural and structural perspective. Prior to establishing her own top level search boutique, Ivy Street, Kate was a Partner at JCA Group where she was a key member of the senior team who helped to establish and grow the business prior to its successful sale to Heidrick & Struggles in 2016. Here she worked with a wide range of FTSE, PE and Privately owned businesses, advising Boards and Senior Executives, ensuring balance and diversity across their leadership teams, as well as continually advising and mentoring future leaders throughout their careers, both from an executive and NED perspective. 

Intuitive, highly aware and with a supportive yet challenging approach, Kate works with individuals and teams to help them realise and maximise their potential, gain confidence in their choices and ensure they have strong self-awareness about how their approach and methods impact others around them.
