Karen Cates - PHD, Author

Karen Cates has been a consultant to the roofing industry for nearly 25 years. She is a founding faculty member of the National Roofing Contractors Association’s Future Executive Institute (FEI) where she focuses on leadership and people management. After nearly 26 years on the faculty at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Karen has recently retired and now focuses her energies on executive coaching and leadership consulting. Her clients include leaders in roofing companies, health care organizations, tech firms and more.

Before entering the world of business, Karen taught pre-school and earned a master's degree in Human Resources and Human Development. She learned, and research confirms, that children start deciding at a very young age important things like what they want to be when they grow up. Combining industry experience with her knowledge of kids, Karen has written two children’s roofing books aimed at highlighting roofing careers and stimulating kids’ career curiosity.

As an author, through her continued work in the classroom as an FEI instructor and as an executive coach, Karen is dedicated to developing future workers and leaders in the roofing industry.
