Catherine has over 20 years experience in EHS, including 12 years with Hewlett Packard where she was directly involved in the start-up of HP from a brownfield site to an operation of 4000 employees. Under her guidance the Irish facility became the first HP manufacturing operation worldwide to gain ISO14001 certification. Catherine played a senior role in developing HP’s Corporate EHS management system rolling the Irish EHS model out globally.
The depth of her knowledge and excellent relationships with the regulatory authorities saw her develop an environmental compliance partnership consultancy, SiteRIGHT Environmental which supported blue chips such as Intel and Diageo and was subsequently sold to Catalyst Environmental after 5 years.
Latterly, she has taken on selective EHS consultancy assignments, including work with Baxter Healthcare, overseeing EHS compliance programmes, industrial hygiene programmes and the successful facility recertification to ISO14001.
