Catherine McGeeney
Consultant

Catherine McGeeney is a native Louisvillian who specializes in strategic planning, communications, and development. She graduated at the top of her class from Assumption High School and went on to receive her B.A. in English from the University of Notre Dame. At Notre Dame, Catherine was an Honors Program student and a leader on a variety of projects through the Center for Social Concerns, which took her to Washington, D.C., eastern Kentucky, and Immokalee, Florida.

Upon graduating in 2006, Catherine was hired by Syrus Global, an ethics reporting provider in Chicago. There she managed the company’s clients and played a key role in its strategic acquisition by Australia-based SAI Global.

In 2010, Catherine moved home to Louisville to direct annual fund efforts and alumnae programs for Assumption High School, where she increased donors by 34% and obtained 100% participation in the faculty/staff annual fund effort. In 2013, she joined the Coalition for the Homeless as Director of Development, where she increased grant revenue by 64%, event income by 22%, and annual fund income by 19% in her first year. In this role, Catherine was also responsible for board recruitment and public awareness efforts, including messaging, social media, and public speaking.

In 2017, Catherine began working as a consultant, and in 2018, she joined Ashley Rountree. A believer in the transformative value of a strong strategy, Catherine assists clients in the creation of strategic communications and development plans to bolster each nonprofit’s profile and to enhance the fundraising initiatives of the organization. Catherine’s expertise also includes annual appeal campaigns, social media, grantwriting, newsletters, press releases, and website copy. Catherine is a skilled public speaker, a natural leader, and an easy collaborator. (Her Gallup StrengthsFinder strengths are: strategic, communication, woo, individualization, and input!)

Catherine and her husband Trevor Park live in the Highlands with their three young children.
