Katie Oliver

Operations Director

If one were to conceptualise how Katie’s brain functions, they’d be right in imagining a mosaic made up of colourful squiggles and monochrome squares. An art piece, that reflects her ability to effortlessly switch between the endless possibilities of a creative and the data-driven mindset from a savvy business exec.In essence, Katie is a translator. A skill that has enabled her to play a pivotal role in growing the award-winning design agency, SHIFT, from inception. She’s also the “glue” that binds together the many business functions of DAN and optimises our processes. Figuratively now part of the furniture — is there any position Katie hasn’t performed?When her scales are tipped towards too much “left brain” thinking, Katie will be dabbling in the arts, subconsciously rebalancing her mind.
