Cathy is also a trusted career advisor and coach to ambitious executives and has coached over 200 MBA graduates, helping to guide them toward successful careers.
Working with Melissa Baxter, Director, Executive Search at Russam GMS, Cathy will help expand the executive search business, with a specialist focus on senior level digital transformation and technology roles.
Commenting on her appointment, Cathy said: “Most businesses are some way on their digital transformation journey and we’re seeing strong demand for digital experts across all sectors. I am looking forward to using my technology expertise and connections to help Russam capitalise on these opportunities.
“I was attracted to Russam GMS because of its culture, which is based on trust and authenticity. The work the company does in the non-profit sector through Trustees Unlimited and Step on Board also really differentiates it – it has an eclectic mix of clients which is refreshing and which brings lots of opportunities for cross-selling and skills sharing.”
