Consultant Of The Quarter – Q4 2014

Meet our Consultant of the Quarter… Helen Sosa-Cousins with YP!

At Optomi, we know we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the hard work and exceptional skills of our consultants, and it only seems right to stand up and take notice when they go above and beyond their duties.

Each quarter, we honor one consultant for actively exhibiting our six core values… being connected, genuine, innovative, unique, dedicated and passionate.  With this award, we recognize a consultant who truly has become part of the Optomi family during her contract with YP.

Helen was nominated by Radka Winwood, VP of Sales and Daniel Guelzo, Director of Talent and Development. “As a Senior Recruiter who’s had the pleasure of working with Helen over the past two years, she is by far one of my favorite 10 ten people I’ve met in the last 18 years of doing this business, Daniel said.    “But I’m a fan… so I thought I would share what others said as well.

Innovative –  “Helen is a great consultant for many reasons, but primarily due to her ability to cut through politics, bureaucracy and passive aggressive behavior and apply her experience and expertise to solve problems in harmony with her business partners (not in spite of them).”  Mark McGinn – VP ePMO Yellow Pages

Passionate – “Helen is hard charging, detailed oriented and perfect at conflict resolution.”  Lucy Evans – VP / CFO RockTenn

Unique – “I consider Helen a very close personal friend and value her judgment and abilities”   Greg Frick – President Dimensional Solutions

Connected – “Helen is widely connected and respected in the Atlanta PMO and Enterprise Change Management community.  In fact, she was a professional referral to Optomi from that community.”  Daniel Guelzo – Director Talent Development

Genuine –  “Helen Cousins is a IT professional who I have had to pleasure to know for several years.   Helen has the hard and soft skill needed to an effective leader she builds high performance teams guided by Helen’s leadership.  Helen is always pleasant and highly professional.”  Michael Halbert – Sr. Business Development Director -Mindtree

Dedicated –  “Helen is a dedicated professional who does whatever it takes to get the work done.”  Linda Hughes – CEO The GreatBridge Company”

As Optomi’s Consultant of the Quarter, Helen is awarded $250 for the charity of her choice.  She selected the Salvation Army (http://salvationarmygeorgia.org)

Todd Black, COO commented, “As a people-driven organization, our focus is on valuing our consultants. When they display the core principles that Optomi was built upon, they truly become an extension of our firm.”
