The Stage Manager
Kate is not afraid of following her passions—nor reluctant to discover new ones. A true theatre kid through high school and the College-Conservatory of Music, when it came time to launch her career, Kate set her sights on becoming a stage manager on Broadway. This further inspired her to work in communication and culture. She landed in the client services space—and, happily for our team, at Acertitude. Everywhere she goes, Kate is someone who manages to draws out the best ideas from anyone and anywhere.
You have to accept whatever comes, and the only important thing is that you meet it with the best you have to give. Eleanor Roosevelt

Based in New York, she collaborates with her team to recruit highly qualified board, C-level, and senior executive talent.

Before coming to Acertitude, Kate served as an associate in the private equity client services practice at AlphaSights, where she connected clients to leading business professionals and industry experts.
