Kate Razzivina, CA ANZ, MBA, BCOM

Chief Financial Officer


My Role at Ascention

I look after all aspects of the finance function for the group, including financial reporting, planning & analysis, cashflow management, banking, risk management and corporate governance.

I also greatly enjoy being a part of our wonderful leadership team and providing the financial input into the day to day and strategic decisions. No two days are the same at Ascention and the culture of the company is amazing.


How Did Your Career Develop to Lead You to Your Role with Ascention?

I started my finance career in the manufacturing industry, then went on to work in various finance roles in the supply and logistics space, and finally ended up in the technology sector which is where my passion lies.

In terms of education, I found the CA ANZ qualification to be exceptionally useful in all aspects of running the finance function, within any industry. I love mentoring people and being mentored myself – always learning and inventing new ways of doing things.

Most importantly, I think it is important to use both data and our hearts in any decision. And of course to never forget to have fun – I am a big believer in the power of play at work!


Considering Your Background, How Is Your Experience Particularly Relevant to Ascention & And Its Clients?

I have been passionate about technology for many years and ever since getting into the technology sector, I have never looked back. Since joining Ascention, I got to really appreciate the power of data and how it can help us make decisions using both our gut feel and years of experience in the field, as well as an accurate picture of what is happening in the real world.

It is amazing how modern tools can help us visualize trends and tell stories about what is happening and is likely to happen, which means we can make the best possible decisions about what we will do next.
