By: RAIN Group
Olson, who began her first administrative role nearly three years ago at RAIN Group, was awarded Rookie of the Year for the significant impact she's had on the firm.
"RAIN Group has allowed me to do so much more than perform the typical duties of an office administrator,"
A former event planner and restaurant manager, Olson joined RAIN Group in 2016 and is responsible for balancing schedules of the company executives, qualifying prospects, assisting with RFPs, planning international conferences, coordinating travel, and preparing workshop materials. In addition to overseeing daily operations at the company's headquarters in the Boston area, Kate also assists consulting partners across the U.S., and international practice directors in Bogotá, Geneva, Johannesburg, London, Mumbai, Seoul, Sydney, and Toronto.
"Kate is the epitome of a dream administrative professional. She consistently demonstrates a commitment to excellence in all that she does." shared Steve Elefson, VP at RAIN Group. "She goes above and beyond to create a positive, upbeat work environment for others and her passion is contagious. I can't think of a more deserving person for this award. We're extremely lucky to have her at RAIN Group!"
The Admin Awards recognizes administrative excellence in nine individual award categories. The Rookie of the Year Award celebrates an administrative professional whose career started less than three years ago. Award winners were announced at an awards gala at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf on November 18.
Kate is a graduate of Cumbria Institute of the Arts in Carlisle, UK with a B.A. in Performing Arts, and holds a M.A. in Public Relations and Event Management from the London College. An escape room fanatic, Kate enjoys singing and recording music, developing stage shows, and cooking.
