Kate began her career in the group benefits field in 1977 as a group sales representative for a Canadian insurance company. In 1979, Kate began specializing in the company’s group pension products and became the pension sales director for the Mid-Atlantic region in 1984. Working closely with large corporations, both public and private, as well as several large labor union pension plans, her sales exceeded $250 million.
In 1993, Kate joined her family’s third-party administrator as senior vice president of sales. In 2013, she closed her family-owned business and transitioned valued and long-term clients to OrchestrateHR through her association with eBen. This move benefited clients with diverse product offerings and the ability to provide a full range of human resources services, while still maintaining the mantra of Kate’s family TPA firm, “Dedicated to Service.”
