Catherine has spent her career scaling B2B technology-based businesses and driving business transformation, using digital and agile strategies to deliver double-digit growth at pace.
As MD of Bidwells she transformed a traditional professional services firm into a progressive and sustainable business for the future which is agile and digitally enabled. She grew revenue from £35m to £55m and pushed EBITDA up by 70%. Prior to that, at a US private equity backed tech business, she delivered international growth across EMEA and APAC.
Catherine started out as a lawyer specialising in IT law, and advising businesses which included the then tech start-ups of Amazon, Google and eBay. She has also undertaken tech-related consultancy roles, trained with Meyler Campbell as a business coach and was an external member of the Cambridge University Audit Committee.
Catherine likes to push herself to the limits (literally!) outside of work – successfully completing unsupported expeditions to both the North and South Poles.
