Kate Drummond

Global Key Account Manager, Personal Care


Kate is currently the Global Key Account Manager, for Personal Care, at BASF. Kate joined the Erb Institute after six years in Washington, DC working on Capitol Hill, in government relations, and in nonprofit environmental policy advocacy. Her Potomac Fever broke when she finally realized that government alone couldn’t create a more sustainable future. Kate is interested in the study of leadership and integration of sustainability into corporate strategy. She is also equally interested in learning how to shift aggregate demand towards sustainably raised meat and produce, and understanding the systems that support the status quo. An avid promoter of women in leadership in all sectors, Kate hopes to see the gender balance in b-school shift toward parity. Kate graduated from Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and environmental studies. In her free time, Kate loves to play ultimate Frisbee, spend time in the kitchen, and talk politics.
