About this Speaker

British entrepreneur and sustainable fashion advocate, Kate McGuire is the founder of Converted Closet.

Kate began her career in Investor Relations Corporate Finance at JPMorgan Cazenove, before rising to become a leading Investor Relations head-hunter, working alongside CFOs and CEOs of FTSE companies to build their teams.

When Kate left the City in 2011, converting clothes— her lifelong passion—became her full-time focus. In 2019, she completed her Sustainable Business Leadership course at Cambridge University. Having built up an instagram following (@convertedcloset), Kate has proved that we can make desirable ‘new’ fashion from old. Her mission is to commercialise conversion, helping to address the fashion industry’s environmental impact.

With Kate’s combination of City experience, her creative skillset, and her sustainability credentials, she is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the seismic shift in the industry and launch Converted Closet as a revolutionary commercial ecosystem.

Kate has recently relocated from London to New York City, where she lives with her family.
