Kathleen joined LACE Partners in September 2019 as the HR Transformation Practice Lead. Prior to LACE, Kathleen became an experienced management consultant at Deloitte designing and implementing global HR transformation programmes. Impacting up to 135,000 employees, these programmes have been some of the most complex in their respective industries, which range from a boutique auction house to the largest electronics companies in the world – predominately focused on simplification and standardisation through people, process and technology change.

Kathleen has led and managed project teams of up to 40 across multiple continents, including off-shore resources and has deep experience of global deliveries, having worked both remotely and face-to-face with teams across five continents. Since joining LACE, Kathleen has been involved in shaping our HR Transformation strategy and focus for the next three years, as well as getting involved in our new HRT projects.

In her personal time, Kathleen’s hobbies include travel (Vietnam and Cambodia are on the hit list for this October), theatre and ballet. She also loves a good afternoon tea – she recently had three afternoon tea sittings in one week!
