CEO & Co-Founder

Katrina is CEO and Co-Founder of Sydney-based fashion technology company, LükBook, which is on a mission to revolution fashion for the 66% of Australian women who wear a size 14 or above.

Since launching in the Australian market in early 2022, LükBook has demonstrated rapid growth, and has to date reached around 3 million women, experienced ~60% MoM growth in sales, and has been featured in a range of national media, including Mamamia, Studio 10, and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Creating and running LükBook represents a true career pivot for Katrina, a former public and foreign policy professional who led the development and execution of policy solutions across four continents, and was a nuclear policy specialist at ANSTO for several years.

In addition, Katrina is an experienced Non-Executive Director, having served on numerous non-profit boards, including for the United Nations Association of Australia, Water Aid, Women in Nuclear, and the University of Sydney Business School Alumni Network.
