As CEO and Chair of the Management Board of B Lab Europe, Katie leads the roll out the B Corp movement across Europe, having set up the UK arm from its inception in 2015. Her previous experience as an economist was in social impact investment, European policy work with the UK government and then in Brussels. After advising the governments of Lithuania and Poland on use of European Social Funds, she then ran a social enterprise in Bulgaria for four years. It was something of a turning point and she returned to university – late in life to study for an MBA – with a determination to work to join the dots between equity, sustainability, business, and policy. It is very much work in progress and made more enjoyable by the phenomenal people from so many different walks of life, who are committed to the same goals.
