The A Team Leader

Catherine Cooke

The Engine was founded by successful entpreneur and leading Business Advisor Catherine Cooke.

Catherine built her first company from the ground up, to multiple companies with a staff number of 90. She has been a business advisor for the last seven years, with an extensive track record in helping businesses grow.

Catherine has seen first-hand how many businesses have struggled because they’ve hired a service provider who couldn’t deliver.
So she set out to change that by vetting and partnering with service providers she knows can deliver on their promises.

At The Engine, you are joining a trusted community of advisors and providers who are committed to helping your business thrive.
