Kate Hipps leads the northeast regional consulting practice at Force Management, managing a hierarchy of consultants who help go-to-market teams align on their messaging and sales processes. Kate’s group manages engagements, often global and primarily within the high-tech industry, that help sales leaders maximize their organization’s profitability and productivity.
In addition to managing the Boston-based consulting team, Kate assumes the role of Solution Architect for all sales activity within her region. Working collaboratively with the sales team, she gathers insights around prospective customers’ goals and requirements to architect an implementable solution that will drive outcomes.
Before coming into her current role, Kate rose up the ranks within Force Management’s consulting organization, managing client engagements of her own. In 2013, she was selected to relocate from Force Management’s Charlotte office to help launch the company’s first regional office in Boston.
Prior to joining Force Management, Kate held a marketing position with Siemens in Raleigh, N.C., and preceding that, lived and worked in Spain as an English teacher for two years. Her time in Spain enabled her to achieve fluency in Spanish and influenced her outside-of-work interests.
Kate currently serves as a Board Advisor at United Planet, a nonprofit that aims to foster cross-cultural understanding by connecting volunteers in communities in over 30 countries. She is also an active member of the Junior League of Boston. In her free time, Kate enjoys travel, interacting with people from different cultures and backgrounds, and spending time with her family.
Kate holds a bachelor’s degree from North Carolina State University.
