Catie has worked as an in-house lawyer in educational publishing for most of her career, moving to the Press in May 2018. She is responsible for legal and compliance, and leads a team of 30+ supporting an international business.
Before joining the Press, she worked at Pearson first as a junior lawyer then eventually as SVP, Chief Privacy Officer, and Associate General Counsel for its £1bn Core Markets group. She trained at Linklaters, having graduated in law from the London School of Economics, and was in the Commercial team at Charles Russell before the move in-house.
Her ambition is to help the organisations she works for appreciate the value that in-house lawyers and compliance professionals bring. She also thinks in-house colleagues can do a lot more to help demonstrate that value. She is particularly interested in bringing operational and process focus to her team’s work to ensure that it delivers that value.
