Kate is Client Director at KBPR, and is responsible for client strategy, planning and new business development. Kate has 20 years’ experience in PR and marketing within the financial sector, specialising in pensions, investments and employee benefits. She established KBPR in 2009 to represent organisations who want to work in partnership to challenge the status quo; doing things differently to innovate, educate and push the conversations and boundaries of the industry. Working across all clients, who represent the full spectrum of services across the industry and everything from new brands to high-profile firms and individuals, Kate lends her expertise and experience to provide strategic and tactical advice across all aspects of PR and marketing. Kate is one of the most respected and sought-after advisers in the industry and her connections with clients, peers and the media speak for themselves. Kate herself was listed in Brummel’s “Ones to watch” and is regularly invited to judge the industry’s largest awards. KBPR is the only full-service agency wholly and exclusively dedicated to the pensions and investment industry, and KBPR are the reigning winner of the FT’s PIPA Financial Services PR Award – their fifth victory in the category. While this leaves little free time for non-pensions pursuits, Kate enjoys assuming the role of Cinderella with her two little daughters, as well as running, boxercise and horse riding.
