Katie Holland Bio
Having spent over 3 decades in the workforce, Katie conceived the idea for Illuminate based on the incredible personal and professional support she enjoyed from her large network. She knew that most working women do not take the time to network and knew that having a supportive organization for women would be a game changer for many of them. Illuminate was created to be that vehicle. Illuminate is the creation of a few of Utah’s brightest women leaders. It is an organization where participants can find training, connection and professional advocacy in our fast-growing economy. By promoting environments where the dynamic perspectives and talents of women (and men) are nurtured and celebrated, Utah’s companies are strengthened.
Katie spent 10 years as President of Corporate Alliance of Salt Lake which is a networking organization for executives. Prior to that she served for 19 years with Innovations International moving from GM to COO. In this capacity, Katie has years of experience with consulting, training and executive coaching, and has traveled the world working with Fortune 200 companies (Merck, Dow Chemical, American Express, Anheuser Busch, Kellogg, EDS, Eastman Kodak, Northrup Grumann, etc.).
Katie enjoys her family, her friendships, playing the piano and reading.
