President, RedKatalyst Consulting
This skill has allowed Kat
to grow and scale dozen's of businesses to the point of succession or acquisition over the last ten years.
While at Obtiva
(aquired by Groupon August 2011), Kat
played a central role in shaping the growth and development of the company and its people.
She is in her element in a start-up technology environment, and after joining Obtiva in early 2008 she rolled up her sleeves and got to work streamlining the internal accounting, finance and human resource functions.
While building Obtiva she served as part of the senior management team overseeing the day-to-day operations while adding strategic value as key change agent to the progression and evolution of the firm.
With more than 15 years of business operational experience, Kat began her career as an auditor while still in college, eventually expanding well beyond finance and accounting into business operations that has spun into areas of strategic sales, marketing & branding, human resources and organizational development.
left the corporate world to establish a business consulting firm where she
specialized in process implementation, change management, growth strategy development and start-up consulting.
