INAUGURAL GENERAL COUNSEL SUMMIT
I am delighted to announce that Catalina Consulting will be one of our Silver sponsors for our Inaugural General Counsel Summit.
Our thanks to Karena Vaughan, the Founder and Managing Director of Catalina Consulting. She is a leading authority on foreign direct investment with a proven track record in helping companies to make smart location decisions and in helping regions to secure high-value investment.
Karena’s expertise and experience are drawn from a highly successful career in international business and economic development. As Director Europe & Russia with Invest Northern Ireland, Karena worked with Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Barclays, Everything Everywhere and Convergys as well as expanding, middle market companies including Augentius Fund Services, Heritage Fund Services and Fintru, on location strategy. Karena additionally led sales teams to secure investment for Northern Ireland from Allen & Overy, Herbert Smith Freehills, Axiom Law, MITIE, Alexander Mann and Eishtec.
From a global supply chain perspective, Karena devised and instigated programmes of engagement with Airbus and Boeing for SMEs in the engineering industry. Karena played a key role in the transition of Northern Ireland from a region of relatively low-value investment to one of the leading UK investment locations.
As General Manager and Sales Director with boutique learning and development company Edge, Karena led the development and delivery of multi-location sales and leadership training programs for Caterpillar, Thomson Reuters, HP and Coca-Cola. She was also responsible for training more than 400 export sales managers for companies including Terex and Ryobi in the US, Europe and APAC.
She received her MBA from Ulster University and her MA and B.Ed. Hons from Queens University Belfast. Fluent in French, she is a Prince II practitioner and has completed the Building Business in Emerging Markets programme at Harvard Business School.
