With 20-plus years in Financial Services, Kate Bohn is a leader, strategist, and innovator for the global finance industry. She has worked across a range of roles and areas, including Markets, Finance, Strategy, Technology, and Operations within a software house, Deutsche Bank, Citi, and Lloyds Banking Group: at all times, the common thread has been a clear focus on innovation and transformation, and she is currently the “Accelerator and Incubator Lead” for Lloyds, working with start-ups and scale-ups on known and emerging focus areas.
Having started with a career in the Art world, she is a champion of diversity, and on a mission for the simplification and democratization of understanding/ access in Financial Services. Alongside her day job and 24/7 role as a parent, Kate is co-founder of the ‘Technical Women in Leadership’ network (aimed at senior/ executive level women in technology and Fintech), and a mentor for several communities including ‘Global Women in Payments’. She is a prime example of ‘squiggly careers’ and how diversity of thinking enables both individuals and robust outcomes to thrive in Financial Services – as evidenced by her recent ”Woman in Technology” award at the Fintech Futures 2020 Banking Tech Awards.
