Director of Talent and Operations, Associate Partner
A Bay Area native, Katie Ramp attended college at UC Davis where she studied Communication, Spanish, and worked as a whitewater guide. Drawing on her passion for creativity and helping people, Katie has worn many hats in her advertising career: as an account manager, a project manager, a resource manager, a recruiter, and an operations lead.
Katie joined MUH-TAY-ZIK / HOF-FER as Director of Talent and Operations focusing on talent acquisition, retention, diversity, equity and inclusion, operations, and culture. An advocate for gender diversity in advertising, her 2016 Cannes Facebook Live discussion with AdWeek about gender balance in creativity beat out Usher’s interview in number of viewers. When she’s not talking to a candidate about their hopes and dreams, she enjoys trail running with her dog Kona, mountain biking, traveling, and baking her way through the Tartine cookbook.
