Practice Manager/Director




Kate is an authentic and passionate senior leader with a demonstrated history of delivering strategic and operational people results within a range of industries in Christchurch.

After completing a Diploma in ECE teaching as well as a BA in Psychology at the University of Canterbury, Kate worked in various industries within Christchurch before joining Structex towards the end of 2012. It is here that she found her passion in helping our business to nurture and grow their biggest asset, our people, as well as a newfound fondness for accounting (albeit initially not by choice!).

The motto “we don’t build a business; we build our people, and the people build the business” is something that drives Kate’s passion as she works with the leadership team to realise the potential of our staff in everything that we do. This coupled with looking after the business’s financial duties and website/social media sees Kate’s creative, organisational and task orientated desires satisfied whilst inputting to wider overarching strategic actions.

In her spare time Kate enjoys cooking up a storm in the kitchen and spending quality time with her family and friends.
