"I have worked with Kate in the past on a number of occasions both in recruiting and in industry. Kate was always incredibly helpful and genuine. She always made it a priority to really understand what I was looking for and didn’t try pushing positions that I wasn’t interested in. ", Financial Services Firm , Senior Consultant

"I had the pleasure of working with the team at Evolve in mid-2014. They were extremely professional. Whether they had 10 or 1,000 candidates, I felt like the most important.", Real Estate Development  , Seth, Controller

"Kate is one of the nicest and most personable professionals in the search business", VP of Business Development, Consultant , Tom Hodges

"I have loved working with Evolve. My previous experience with recruiters has left me feeling like I’m working to get them networks, not that they’re working for me to get a job. Evolve is the complete opposite.", Not-for-profit Organization , Financial Analyst

"Kate works with a top tier client base, is extremely well connected in the DC metro area, and her relationships allow her to find opportunities that are not advertised...", Global Investment Bank , Associate

"I have worked with Kate over the past couple of years. I find her team to be very well connected, extremely professional and not your typical head-hunters.", Financial Services Firm , HR Business Partner

"...Even when Evolve was not working with a client I was interested in, they were able to provide insight into the company based on their deep industry knowledge and put me in touch with the right people. ", Telecommunications Industry , Finance Manager

"Evolve Partners was an integral part of our expansion and helped us build our finance function from near the ground up. Their expertise placing talent in high growth, private equity backed organizations was apparent and differentiated them from their competition. ", Belcan Government Services , Bob Kwaja

"I have worked with a number of other recruiters in the past, and the level of preparation through Evolve was unmatched. – Real Estate Development Candidate", Real Estate Firm , Real Estate Development Manager

Leadership

Kate Brogden is the Principal and Founder of Evolve Partners. Prior to Evolve, Kate spent three years in public accounting with PricewaterhouseCoopers. While at PwC, she gained audit & advisory experience in the following industries: Banking & Capital Markets, Technology, Aerospace & Defense, Retail & Consumer and Non-Profit. After PwC, Kate joined an executive search firm in McLean, VA. While there, Kate was at 225% of her quota. A year after joining the executive search and recruiting business, Evolve was formed. Kate received her BS and MS in Accounting from the University of Colorado at Boulder and obtained her CPA shortly after. Kate loves networking and connecting people to enrich their careers and personal lives. She is passionate about becoming a partner to her clients and helping them understand the marketplace; who they can hire (vs who they might want to hire), who will be the right fit for the long term and how to beat out their competition in the war on talent.

 

In her free time she enjoys traveling, sports (golf, running, skiing, cycling) and spending time with her family (her husband Rad, their daughters Ellie, Caroline & Whitney and their black lab Cara).
