“Employees are the most valuable resource a company possesses, especially a smaller one where a single person can have a tremendous impact on the company’s ability to succeed. That is why I’ve been thrilled to work with the TSP portfolio companies. Partnering with them to ensure that their HR strategy aligns with their business objectives is incredibly rewarding. I love the relationships I have built with both the leaders and employees at these organizations, and I love helping both exceed their potential.”
