A senior management professional to CEO level, with over 20 years’ experience in the commercial and academic sectors, Karen specialises in developing business strategy, relationships and raising profiles, with the aim of influencing, educating and unlocking solutions for people and organisations. The result is strategic goals developed, alliances created, market opportunities identified and potential optimised, thus driving growth and results.
Her cross sector background leads to specific insights. A qualified Marine Biologist to Masters level, her passion for investigating the impact of man-made activities on the marine environment led her to work on academic/scientific research, aquaculture and consultancy projects throughout Europe. Following a move into the private commercial sector, where she gained over 13 years’ experience with the drinks giant Diageo in risk management, regulatory and government affairs across global regions, she combined her scientific and commercial expertise to help open new market sectors and commercialise innovative technologies and ideas from subsidiary companies within academia.
Most recently she has worked strategically across the oil and gas decommissioning sector with the member organisation Decom North Sea as General Manager and Interim CEO.
In March 2017 she took the next natural career step of working for herself where she is using her experience and extensive cross sector network to provide support and consultancy to commercial and academic entities, start-up and established, to identify opportunities, create alliances and drive growth.
