Katie is the founder and Chair of iNHouse Communications, the only female-owned and managed agency in Westminster.
In a 20-year career at the heart of politics, Katie has advised parliamentarians on both sides of the political divide – running the PR campaign for Boris Johnson’s successful Mayoral bid in 2008 and then going on to become the first female Director of Communications at No.10 Downing Street for Theresa May.
Prior to this, Katie served in a number of senior roles, including Deputy Head of Press for ITV News and Head of Press for Channel 4 News. She is a former Non-Exec Director for a South London NHS Trust, was appointed by Prime Minister David Cameron to the board of a Garden City and was a Cabinet Member for over a decade in a London borough, with responsibility for community affairs, housing and children’s services over that time.
Katie is a member of the Suburban Taskforce, a board member of the think tank REFORM and the Chair of Conservatives in Communications. Katie now provides crisis management, campaigning expertise and strategic senior counsel to a range of different corporate and public affairs clients across Tech, FMCG, Food and Drink, Education, Infrastructure and Transport sectors.
In addition, she has written over twenty opinion pieces for the Times newspaper, several for Politico and hosts radio shows on Times and Talk Radio. She is also a political commentator, regularly appearing on the BBC, Sky News, ITV, Channel 4 News, and LBC.
