women to leadership roles
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/BalanceforBetter?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#BalanceforBetterlt;/agt;–Triple
Crown Consulting, a technology recruitment firm filling hard-to-find
senior tech roles through its vast talent network, announces the
creation of five new leadership roles in the growing company. The
positions have all been filled by women – Vanessa Hernandez, Director of
Operations; Monica Jackson, Regional Vice President; Sarah Milliken,
Director of Finance and Accounting; Jenn Casinader, Director of Human
Resources; and Heather Walker, General Counsel. As the world celebrates International
Women’s Day 2019, Triple Crown recognizes the importance of
advancing the role of women in the recruitment and technology
industries, both in its own company and through the talent it places.
The new positions were created in direct response to Triple Crown’s
recent and projected growth. The company has increased its client
portfolio by 17 percent and plans to reach $100 million in 2019 annual
revenue. It has expanded its footprint with two new offices in
Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Costa Mesa, California over the past two
years, for a total of five offices.
“Triple Crown is growing at a tremendous rate, which called for the
creation of these new roles,” said Triple Crown CEO Padma Sunkara.
“We’re thrilled to appoint five women to these positions. Each one of
them is incredibly gifted in their disciplines and will play a critical
role as Triple Crown continues to grow.”
“There’s no doubt we’re seeing more women in technology than ever
before, and Triple Crown is committed to striking a gender balance so
our company can best engage with the changing workforce with the right
mix of energetic, driven and competitive talent,” added Triple Crown
Co-Founder Dave Smith.
Meet the New Members of Triple Crown’s Leadership Team
Appointed as Director of Operations in January 2019, Vanessa
Hernandez supports Triple Crown’s leadership team and staff while
ensuring the company’s clients and consultants receive a superior talent
partner experience. Since joining in 2007, Hernandez has not only been a
pioneer in her role as Director of Sales Operations but was the first
woman hired as an Account Manager at Triple Crown during its early
years. Looking ahead, Hernandez is committed to taking the organization
to the next level by growing its staff and pushing the team to work at
peak capabilities. “I’ve learned that everything is a work in progress
and success doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, persistence and
dedication and I’m committed to creating a culture that embraces this
process,” said Hernandez.
Jackson joined Triple Crown in 2012 as an Account Manager and
quickly rose through the ranks, most recently being promoted to Regional
Vice President overseeing the San Jose and Costa Mesa, California
offices. Throughout the years, Jackson has developed a reputation for
delivering the right talent exactly when and where the client needs it.
She brings persistence and problem-solving to every engagement and has
built a robust talent pipeline in a region that is highly competitive
for IT recruiting. In her new role she plans to keep growing the Triple
Crown business alongside the entire leadership team. Jackson stated, “I
intend to maintain my hands-on approach and look forward to continuing
to mentor our regional employees so that they can achieve their full
Milliken was promoted from Controller to Director of Finance and
Accounting in January of this year. She joined Triple Crown in 2016 and
has accomplished a tremendous amount in a short time, including bringing
the accounting function in-house and streamlining and organizing its
processes and procedures. Milliken also put into place structures around
internal bonuses and budgets, created transparency around the back
office and strengthened communication between the department and the
rest of the company. “My goal has always been to build and maintain
trust between production and operations so that we can improve accuracy
and organization within the company,” said Milliken.
In her two years with Triple Crown, Jenn
Casinader has made a tremendous operational and cultural impact on
the company. Recently promoted to Director of Human Resources, Casinader
started the human resource department with the philosophy that proper
training, mentorship and a supportive environment are what motivates
people, especially in the competitive world of technology recruiting.
Now managing an HR team, Casinader helps each employee look beyond
metrics to understand which behaviors contribute to good outcomes or act
as barriers to success. “I’ve been able to create this type of
environment because Triple Crown’s management empowers its leaders to do
what they think is best for their departments,” remarked Casinader.
Walker joined Triple Crown as General Counsel in February of this
year. She has an extensive background in creating and managing legal
departments and will be tasked with building Triple Crown’s legal team
as the company enters a new phase of growth. “One of the things that
attracted me to Triple Crown was that its executives placed women in key
leadership roles within the company,” stated Walker. “I think bringing
different perspectives to the table is critical to a company’s success
and I look forward to working with the entire team.”
