Catherine Andersen |  Partner

Catherine is the powerhouse behind the Omera Partners team as Partner, Organisational Development and Talent Acquisition.

Catherine was first attracted to the role because it provided a unique opportunity to put into practice what she had learned about attracting and retaining great people throughout her career. Taking it one step further, she now gets to work with the results every day at Omera Partners.

Regional in nature and expanding as the firm continues to globalise, the role is complex and has a direct impact on the culture and bottom line of the company, and she enjoys being at the cutting edge of the strategic direction and growth of the firm.

Catherine has enjoyed more than 20 years in Executive Search (Financial Services) culminating in becoming a Partner for one of the ‘big 5’ top tier global firms. She enjoyed regional (Asia Pacific) responsibility for managing businesses and growing teams for at least 15 of those years as either an employee or in her own business. Her experience has provided her with a global network of industry professionals, an understanding of the pros and cons of different styles of organisations and their commerciality. In all, she applies her collective wisdom to the staffing of Omera Partners, continuing to build and to grow a strong and resilient global business.

When away from the office, Catherine runs - a lot; marathons, half marathons and trail running. She loves yoga and has found her interest in art, architecture, design are the threads that have pulled her life together. With adult children living in far-flung countries, she has a great excuse to travel and loves to cook with family and friends.
