Kate Quigley is the Director of Business Development for the San Francisco studio. She plays the role of matchmaker between clients and project teams to ensure the set-up of successful, rewarding partnerships: engaging the right people at the right time to create the right solutions for end-user needs. With a background in Account Management, Program Management, and Business Strategy, Kate considers business development conversations an exciting opportunity for big questions (“why”) and specific alignment around how to create new products and services (“how”).
Prior to Method, she worked as an Associate Program Management Director (ADPM) at frog design and Account Manager at Digitas. She began her career 13 years ago at BBDO, where she first developed an appreciation for the power of creative/business partnerships. Kate has worked with clients across a variety of sectors including healthcare, automotive, mobile technology, enterprise software, entertainment media, consumer electronics, financial services, and non-profits.
Kate has an MBA from NYU Stern where she had a dual-specialization in Entrepreneurship & Innovation and Organizational Management. She went to Emory University for her undergraduate degree and majored in English. She lives in a fairy woodland in Oakland with her family of four, hiking and eating ramen most weekends.
