Kate Hall

VP of Business Development

I grew up just outside of Dallas with dreams of becoming an interior designer, but my Dad encouraged me to check out Accounting. Talk about a 180! I studied Accounting and Economics at The University of North Texas and signed up for every study abroad program I could along the way.

After college, I spent a few years at KPMG in the Advisory practice with a focus on Internal Audit and spent a lot of time helping with campus recruiting. I then transitioned to agency recruiting, where I leveraged my network and accounting knowledge to help companies in DFW staff their Accounting and Finance teams. My clients ranged from PE-backed startups to Fortune 500 companies, in just about every industry, where I placed Staff Accountants to Controllers. Through this experience, I’ve seen a huge need for companies to find a strategic partner with a professional services firm, and now I’m looking forward to making sure Embark is in their corner!

I love meeting new people and learning how companies get started and grow, while working through all the problems along the way. At Embark, I continue to focus on building relationships with Accounting and Finance leaders, and I am excited to partner with companies in new ways to help solve their problems!

Outside of work, you’ll find me and my husband, David, renovating our home (keeping the interior design dream alive!) and spending time with our daughter, Sloane. I love hot yoga, cooking, and exploring all the fun things Dallas has to offer.
