After completing her Bachelor of Science, and with a background competing at National level in swimming, Katy spent the first 5 years of her professional career as successful coach at international level. Katy thrives on enabling people to make the best of themselves and on the back of 2 years working as a managerial consultant and motivation coach in the recruitment sector, she was headhunted into her first role at Reed.
Katy quickly became one of the Region’s most successful interim recruiters and was selected to be a part of their management training scheme, as well as their client account leadership team. She was again headhunted into her next role, where she developed her skills within the permanent executive search arena. It was in this role in 2010 that she immersed herself into the world of procurement and supply chain, where she developed new and long-standing relationships on an international scale with blue chips and SMEs alike. Quickly she was promoted to the executive leadership team and was also a key trainer and mentor for the business.
Katy joined Purcon in 2013 to lead our highly skilled and dedicated team of consultants and help us to solidify our standing in the market as the UKs most highly regarded and successful procurement and supply chain recruitment consultancy. She now runs all operations for Purcon in EMEA and the U.S and manages all activity within supply chain and operations. Katy specialises in executive search and C-suite appointments across both procurement and supply chain and leads our client growth in the FMCG, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing sectors.
Core values that have run through Katy’s career are honestly and integrity. She believes that these values drive strong, longstanding and successful relationships. With her coaching background, she has been an invaluable addition to the senior team and has helped/mentored many consultants through their career progression with passion – Katy truly believes in the abilities of her team and strives to help them achieve their goals.
Still an avid swimmer, Katy loves all sports and in her spare time also enjoys surfing, reading, writing the odd script and going to the theatre.
