In the high-stakes environment, Katherine understands how to turn investment potential into tangible results – project after project. For example, she led the software consolidation strategy for a $200 million combined business, delivering $12 million in annual cost savings through automation and organizational redesign. She provided program management office (PMO) leadership for a technology organization’s commercial product integration strategy – delivering $5 million in headcount savings within three months of closing, and positioning the organization to save nearly $9 million after platform consolidation and customer migration.
Her work with private equity investors includes pre-transaction due diligence, sell-side advisory services, IT strategy development, and software post-merger integration. Katherine has led over 100 buy and sell-side projects with a concentration on the software and high-tech industry.
She discovered West Monroe while talking to a colleague on a train commuting in from Connecticut. Previously, she spent four years in data science consulting for insurance, investment banking, manufacturing, and retail clients. She earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Carnegie Mellon and a master’s degree in biostatistics from the University of Michigan.
When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time outside, reading, cooking, traveling, and playing with her dog, Chewy.
Katherine is dedicated to helping grow the next generation of leaders through her involvement with West Monroe’s Women in M&A initiative, which seeks to attract and retain more women in the M&A field through mentoring, training, and networking.
