Ms. Newman grew up in Market Harborough, a picturesque town in the midlands and attended Robert Smyth Academy. From a young age she was focused on her studies and wanted to strive for success. As a Transaction Leader she ensures that her clients are properly advised and supported with the marketing of their business, overseeing meetings, conference calls, offers, and the legal process from lead to completion. Selling one’s business usually means selling one’s life’s work, and Kate safeguards clients’ interests through the entire process to the final sale of the business.


Before joining Benchmark International, Ms. Newman studied LLB Law and completed a postgraduate course in Legal Practice. She also worked around her studies for more than six years as a personal care assistant for a woman with cerebral palsy. She took on various roles including live-in care, personal assistance, childcare giving, tutoring and homeschool teaching. Working for her inspired Kate to share her level of resilience. Both her academic and work experience has strengthened her abilities to be meticulous, compassionate, strong-minded, articulate, and conscientious in her role today. She was drawn to Benchmark International because of the opportunity to be in a challenging role from the start with a clear progression path.

My thanks to Kate and Benchmark for completing the sale of my business. We were unfortunately let down on a couple of occasions by the purchasers but Kate kept positive at all times until completion. My thanks to Kate for seeing the sale through and guiding me through some difficult times to completion. Very imposing and professional attitude in selling my business. Thank you to both Benchmark and Kate.

What a team to deal with…even our buyer was impressed and said he'd use Benchmark in the future. As a complete novice in selling a business, Benchmark were there for us, guiding us dealing with the ups and downs of any process and explaining everything to us. From the initial contact to the management team, it was faultless. We reserve special mention to Kate who has been an absolute diamond in dealing with everything and keeping the flow moving. She was an invaluable resource during the whole process so a massive thank you from us. Great company great resource, great staff.
