Welcome to Business Innovators Magazine…Please introduce yourself and a brief thumbnail sketch of your background.
KH: Hello, my name is Katharine Halpin, I spent 150-years as a CPA and was always frustrated by the people issues. If you have people, you have people issues.
In 1995, I launched a new business, The Halpin Companies, Inc. to facilitate growth and acceleration initiatives within organizations of all sizes and levels of complexity by focusing on getting the right people in the right roles driving the right results.
BI: What would you say is the area in business that you are most passionate about and why?
KH: Growth and acceleration of businesses. I get excited about building wealth for people at all levels; shareholders, executives, management, and front-line workers. Our economy critically needs us to grow productivity and profitability quickly. I love seeing this happen. My goal is for everyone I touch to make more money and work fewer hours. It has proven to be a sustainable by-product of client engagements since 1995.
