Crain’s 2020 Forty Under 40: Kate Volzer
Kate Volzer knew from a young age that she wanted to go into business, having grown up helping out at her mother’s salon in Northeast Ohio. But it wasn’t a particular sector of business that drew her in; it was the chance to help people be their best.
“I always wanted to lead people,” Volzer said.
Volzer said she’s always enjoyed learning about people and finding ways to support their talents. As an undergraduate at the University of Chicago, she had the chance to lead student organizations, where she learned how to motivate people and get them to believe in her mission, even when she didn’t have real authority over them.
