Elke Ridenour, Principal

From teams of engineers to teams of volunteers, I take people from where they are to where they surpass their goals. Show me your destination, and I will get you there, making sure everyone is on board and important details stay visible.

 

I’m a passionate generalist, an authentic relationship builder, and a thoughtful communicator. My job is to guide you on the path to success. I’m driven by mission and fueled by a genuine desire to see clients achieve their goals. I’ve worked in start-ups to Fortune 100 corporations; in industries as varied as manufacturing, financial services, technology and SaaS.

Here are some of the things I've done:

  • Developed and institutionalized a national quality award-winning strategic planning and execution process

  • Co-invented a cybersecurity product that doesn’t require public encryption

  • Co-founded a performing arts collegiate recruiting service

 

  • Turned around a failing $100+ million ERP project and led it to implementation

  • Built out departments and processes, hired people to staff them

  • Standardized and automated processes to achieve an 80% reduction in cycle time

  • Launched a SaaS recruiting site within 90 days

  • Overhauled a marketing site for SaaS within 90 days, increased traffic 200%, Google search results on 1st page within 2 weeks, converted visitors at 20%
