Bowden Smith

Chief Executive Officer

Kate set up Pier in 2008 and as CEO oversees the strategic direction of the company alongside MD Amy. She loves to get stuck into client work and uses her years of experience to advise clients and provide strategic guidance on campaigns. With an obsession for renewable energy and sustainability, Kate is a real comms specialist with a raft of campaigns, brand launches and stakeholder relations programmes under her belt.

My proudest Pier moment was

Every time I hear from a happy client praising the amazing work the team has done

When I’m not at work you’ll find me

In a kayak or on a stand-up paddle board; I’m happiest when I’m on the water!

I’ll never be able to eat enough

Chocolate! I’d love to say something healthy here but I just can’t help being a chocoholic

My dream green future is

Homes that are almost off grid – with their own energy source, super insulated with natural ventilation and as close to Passivhaus as possible; and of course, growing veg like The Good Life
