I've got a passion for the nitty gritty details that improve how companies operate. Prior to founding Steglich Consulting, I’ve worked in the operational trenches of tech companies and startups for over 25 years, including PepsiCo, Barclays, Verisk, and Buildfax, among others. I’ve built and led project management, professional services, client support/success, development, and backend operations teams across a wide variety of industries. Recently, I headed innovation operations at Verisk ISO where I helped create a corporate innovation accelerator program to help leading-edge products reach revenue faster. For the past 15+ years, I've specialized in developing operational strategies and frameworks for startups and early-growth companies, positioning them for growth and acquisition, including experiencing 3 exits.
I founded my company because I love helping people be successful, whether it’s coaching individuals for growth or working with teams to put frameworks in place to help the organization grow. And I know, using my breadth of experience, I can offer my clients peace of mind. I've partnered with CEOs and leadership teams to define strategy and then translate it into actionable KPIs to measure the organization's success.
I'm married to someone who loves operational frameworks as much as I do, and together we're raising a 6-year old little girl whose already teaching her stuffies how to meet their goals. For fun, I'm an avid hiker, lover of good sushi, traveler, tote-bag toting book lover, and a lifelong 60-Minutes watcher.
"I can say without reservation that Kim is the finest early stage operations leaders that I’ve ever seen. She's helped us get organized and get out of our own way."
"As a high growth, early-stage company we were in need of an experienced operations guru who understood the levers to pull in order to help us scale in a way that was sustainable for the long-term. Kim has been all of that and more. She is thoughtful, patient, and has helped us tremendously. She has been a fantastic mentor to members of our operations team and is a thought partner to me as a Founder/ CEO. We are so grateful for her contributions to our firm and look forward to continuing to work with her in the future. "
"I cannot recommend Kim enough. She is incredibly skilled at juggling multiple, complex initiatives, driving process improvements across the organization, all while leading her team in a personable, honest manner. Kim has the ability to handle stressful situations with a steady hand, and naturally makes clients and colleagues at ease. When Kim is involved, you know the work will be exceptional."
