Kate Ross - "An accomplished entrepreneur and innovator, I have achieved 20 years of successful leadership in the recruitment and talent management sector. I founded Kinetic in 1997, and was able to rapidly grow it into a thriving national business due to the provision of superior services to both clients and candidates. Kinetic has offices in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch, and has been recognised with several ‘excellence in recruitment’ awards. Adept at innovating to meet market opportunities, I founded Swivel Careers in 2009 (originally called Whr24U) having recognised that student candidates at Kinetic were often lacking in career direction. I founded Wise Ones in 2017 in response to the under-utilisation of the growing number of older workers; Wise Ones is now enabling their experience and talent to be matched into suitable roles. Commercial success has been facilitated by developing high-performing teams within these businesses. I lead by example and live the core values of honesty, loyalty, directness, ethical practice and hard work. I am motivated by making a difference, and driven by the belief that everyone has the talent to take their place in the workforce, and in doing so, support their personal development as well as positively impact their families and communities. Described as an inspiring leader, blending ambition, resilience and compassion, I am particularly proud to have supported numerous women in their roles and careers. Having chaired the Friends Committee of King’s School, I subsequently served as a King’s School Board Member for five years until 2016. I am interested in governance opportunities and wish to bring my skills and strategic thinking to directorships in the private sector."
