SUE SALVESEN | BIO
Sue Salvesen founded STRe Solutions in 2004 after a successful career as a Silicon Valley Chief Financial Officer. Sue saw a need for a different approach in the industry and decided to leverage her CFO experience to find smart and stellar talent for her clients. Her standard is high because she will only bring to you someone whom she herself would have considered a great hire for her team! As frustrating as it might be, Sue will prefer to tell a client we don’t have anyone to present yet, rather than “send resumes over the transom”, one of her least favorite terms. Before founding STRe Solutions, short for Strategic Resource Solutions, Sue led three IPOs as CFO for Silicon Valley companies and, as Corporate Controller at Aspect Telecommunications, she led the finance organization while revenues grew from $5M to over $100M and completed a successful IPO. Sue founded STRe Solutions because she was passionate about changing the way searches were done. She never understood why fees were so high,and searches weren’t cancellable and based on milestones. And why did she have to pay high fees for “just a resume”? At STRe, our engaged searches are milestone-based and we provide a tailored presentation spreadsheet with career history and a summary of the candidate’s skills compared to our client’s key must-haves. Sue received her BA Degree in Economics with High Honors and Distinction in Economics from Douglass College of Rutgers University. She also holds an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. She is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Beta Gamma Sigma. In May 2019 Sue was elected to serve on the National Board of Financial Executives International. In her spare time Sue enjoys golf, sailing, cooking, and spending time with family and friends!
