With a Masters in HR Management and a Post Grad in Personnel Development, Catherine spent the early years of her career in HR management, igniting a passion for the employee benefits industry. She identified a gap in the market where there was little support for SMEs as competitors were only interested in bigger businesses. As a result, Catherine used her experience to found caboodle in 2009 and has continued to shape it to meet the needs of clients of all shapes and sizes.
Catherine has been an active member of the CIPD for many years and is also part of the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women program.
Whilst her work life is extremely busy she still manages quality time with her husband and 2 children. In her ‘me time’, Catherine indulges in her passion for horses, competing at events whenever she can, on her horse Simply Blits, AKA Norman! And if that’s not enough, she’s a keen cyclist too, and has taken on various charity events including London2Paris to raise money for Cure Leukaemia.
