In that role, Holt will be responsible for maintaining and elevating organizational efficiency as Broadcat continues to scale. She will oversee key business functions including HR, IT, marketing, and administration as Broadcat.

Broadcat takes a behavioral approach to compliance communications and training. That’s an approach in which the company works with how people actually are — busy and overwhelmed with day-to-day tasks.

Noted as a “behavioral compliance best practice” by the Temple Law Review, Broadcat crafts tools that guide employees on what to do at the right moment, making it clear how compliance and ethics apply to regular job duties such as financial approvals, maintaining privacy, managing vendors, closing deals, and more.

“Kitty’s experience working cross-functionally and at all levels of the organization will be invaluable in her new role at Broadcat,” CEO Alex Klingelberger said in a statement.

Holt comes to Broadcat from Plan International USA, where she worked in the areas of donor retention and research, before starting up their compliance function over a decade ago.

While at Plan, Holt led a number of projects with employees across the organization, including risk management, managing a strategic planning process, streamlining procedures to ensure program participants are kept safe, and working with other team members to efficiently roll out policies.

“I have admired Broadcat for a number of years and am thrilled to be working with them. Their innovative and entertaining approach, which meets employees where they are, makes them stand out among their peers,” Holt said in a statement.
