Principal Client Director

Kathleen is a Principal Client Director for Korn Ferry's Digital Enterprise team. She helps Marquis and NA Regional clients tackle the challenges of the Digital Age with new approaches to identify equip organize and deploy Talent.

Kathleen has spent 20 years as a Commercial leader challenging clients to re-think their approach to Digital Transformation with Talent at the core.

Kathleen's unique perspective comes from her experience in both Talent and Technology.  As a sales leader at Salary.com, she worked with HR leaders to develop world-class Compensation practices and Competency solutions with one of the first SaaS platforms. 

Seeing the accelerating disruption of technologies like SaaS and mobile on traditional business models, she shifted to the technology advisory space where she has spent the last 10+ years focused on helping C-Level technology and business executives develop, communicate, and execute their Digital Transformation ambitions.  

Prior to Korn Ferry, Kathleen was at Gartner, advising a well-known Financial Services firm.  Partnering with her clients and internal teams, she built successful business cases for complex advisory solutions.  Her clients appreciated her relentless focus on the value proposition from the C-Level perspective, highlighting links between the solution, business outcomes, Board-level priorities and strategic objectives.

Kathleen holds both her Undergraduate degree and MBA from Simmons College with a concentration in Finance.
