What’s your name, your job title, and how long have you worked at K2?
My name is Katie Musloe. I am Vice President of Operations at K2, and I have worked at the company for 13.5 years.     

As a member of the X Annos community, what motivates you to keep working at K2?
The belief that I have in the company, a belief which has been there since my first interview.Working for a company that you believe in is all the motivation that you need to stay there.

What advice would you give to women aspiring to leadership roles in the business world, based on your own experiences and insights?
Don’t shy away from getting your hands dirty, from really getting into the nitty gritty of a situation. Really go above and beyond. And that doesn’t just mean committing to doing things that scare you; it also means being willing to help anybody with whatever they’re struggling with.

How has K2 supported your career growth over the last 10+ years?
I didn’t really know what I wanted to do when I started at K2. The company and its people allowed me to grow alongside them, and that gave me direction.

Can you share a pivotal moment in your career journey, one which has led to a real sense of fulfilment for you?  
That moment would be when I joined K2’s Executive Leadership Team (ELT). As part of the ELT, I am able to work on projects that really benefit the people at K2, then deliver them to the business and experience their positive impact on the K2 Family.

How do you think that K2 is challenging the Status Quo in the global mobility industry?
By really, truly remembering the human aspect of the industry: our people embody K2’s because it’s personal ethos in everything that they do.

What do you think the future would look like if we had more female leaders?
For me, it’s not about having more leaders of a particular gender; it’s about having more of the right leaders.

How can more companies foster a more inclusive and supportive environment for women?
By being respectful and treating everybody equally – both of these things can go a long way.
