I'm an experienced luxury wholesale manager, working across both designer and contemporary price points.
Having spent 10 years in the UK, I've now relocated back to Australia to start a family and work on a freelance/consultancy basis.
My selling and strategic style is pragmatic, personable, and collaborative.
I always place the interests of the brand at the forefront of my decisions, and strive for the most favourable solutions in negotiations.
I am a people person, and love to spend that little extra time with clients; either in appointments, over the phone or with a coffee.
I have long standing relationships with both key accounts, and leading independent boutiques worldwide.

Kate was a joy to work with. Not only is she a lovely person to have on the team, but she is committed, consistent and a problem solver. Kate is a level-headed person and doesn’t get easily flustered in pressured situations. I would definitely hire Kate back given the opportunity and can highly recommend her for start-up, emerging and larger businesses that need an excellent sales, account management and wholesale specialist
Sales Manager, Victoria Beckham
Kate worked as an integral part of the sales team. Her dedication to all aspects of her job demonstrated a professional attitude to work and how efficiently she managed every task given. She provided support to all members of her immediate team and to the other areas of the business when called upon. We have kept in touch and I happily put her forward for any suitable positions. Kate would be a valuable addition to any business.
