Kate Fraser
Group HR Director, Chime

Kate joined the Executive Management Team in October 2015 to lead the development of a group-wide approach to HR, working with the divisional heads of HR. Kate has worked within the Chime Group since 1999 when she joined In Real Life, a Chime-owned brand consultancy, as HR Manager. She subsequently moved to Chime as HR Projects Manager, supporting managing directors and working on people projects across the Group as it has grown from 400 employees to over 2,000. More recently as HR Manager at Chime Central, she’s worked closely with divisional HR teams to provide advice on a wide variety of people issues and projects and to link the work that is being done in the various divisions.
In the early part of her career Kate worked in education and training, initially as a secondary school teacher and then as Training Manager for Regis Europe, the UK division of a large US hair and beauty salon chain. That role led to a Masters degree in Human Resource Management and several years leading the HR team within Regis before the move to Chime.
