Kathryn is a Partner at Amrop Carmichael Fisher in Melbourne, Australia. Kathryn joined Amrop Carmichael Fisher as Partner in 2019 bringing over 20 years' experience in consulting, building her career with boutique agencies and large international executive search firms.

Specialising in the Government sector, Kathryn has provided executive search services for CEO, Deputy Secretary, Executive Officer, General Manager and Director mandates for various State Government departments and agencies. Additionally, she has also managed Chair and Board appointments for several Statutory Authorities. As a result, she brings a strong understanding of the sector and its specific requirements, including diversity to the search and engagement of executives and Non-Executive Directors.

Relationship management has been a major focus for Kathryn and she is passionately committed to understanding the ever-changing needs of clients and carefully assesses the capabilities of candidates to ensure a good cultural match between the two. She has a strong understanding of the Government sector but more importantly the importance of building lasting relationships with clients and candidates alike.

Outside of work, Kathryn enjoys tennis, running, music and most of all spending time with family and friends.
