Kate joined Baringa as a Partner in April 2019 to lead our Pharmaceuticals and Lifesciences practice. She brings with her over 30 years of Industry experience and a strong mix of advisory and delivery skills. She has lived and worked internationally as the industry has undergone significant disruption enabling her to advise her senior clients through challenging, diverse situations.
Kate has led numerous business strategy, performance improvement and change management projects across R&D, Medical Affairs and Market Access. She’s well known for helping clients deliver challenging and complex multi-year efforts, defining radically different operating models and breaking down siloes to create a collaborative culture across the value chain.
Kate knows the importance of staying current and is a business mentor to a selection of start-ups harnessing new technologies, data and innovation in the products and services they’re developing. The insight she gains helps her navigate the development and implementation of new technologies to enhance business outcomes.
Outside of work Kate is energised by nature and the environment which is a little at odds with her favourite sport of waterskiing. As a result she’s learning to sail and windsurf with the help of her husband and son. She lives near Cambridge and enjoys nothing more than wandering the streets of this beautiful city or along the sandy beaches of the nearby North Norfolk coast.
