Kate joined Speak Up Africa as CEO after six years as managing director at Malaria No More (MNM), where she established MNM's strategic institutional direction and led the development and execution of a $15 million portfolio in capacity building, innovative communications, and African-based strategic advocacy. At MNM, Kate conceived, designed, and implemented comprehensive “Surround Sound” communications programs, using influencers from across a wide cultural spectrum to market healthy behaviors in child health. She led the award-winning “United Against Malaria” campaign, which reached billions of Africans with messages from icons Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o. Kate also implemented NetGuarantee, which partnered with private-sector financial institutions including Goldman Sachs, the Soros Economic Development Fund, and a number of private financial and insurance entities to offer African countries innovative finance options to accelerate the delivery of life-saving commodities to at-risk populations in Africa.
