Kate Daly

Managing Director

Kate leads the Center for the Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners, an innovation center for research, analysis and collaboration to accelerate the transition to a circular economy in which materials are shared, re-used and continuously cycled.

Prior to joining Closed Loop Partners, Kate served in New York City government for more than a decade, most recently as Senior Vice President at the NYC Economic Development Corporation. At NYCEDC Kate led a team launching innovative business development programs to foster the growth of entrepreneurship, strengthen New York City’s anchor and emerging industries and create new jobs. She managed a portfolio across sectors including smart cities, healthcare, cleantech, fashion, tech, media and advanced manufacturing. Kate previously served as the Executive Director of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The transition from our current leaky, linear system will take imagination, collaboration, and hard work, and I’m thrilled to have the Center for the Circular Economy play a role at the intersection of design, finance, and infrastructure.
