Our Story in a Nutshell

Carol Renaud, Business Manager

Spotlight on Leadership

Meet Carolyn Renaud, our business manager, who has been with the company since 2001, second only in time on the job to our founders.  Born in Seattle as a baby boomer, Carol spent years in purchasing for Westinghouse before joining Boeing for 20 years as their Small and Disadvantaged Business procurement liaison. She joined Southam when she retired from Boeing when our offices were located in Pioneer Square in Downtown Seattle.  She doesn’t miss the commute or parking we had to endure in those days!

A Strong Leader
You can’t be in Carol’s role in a company that manages multiple brands and has been through six mergers and acquisitions in 10 years without having some grit.  Carol is a genuine leader on our team who is encouraging and supportive, with the ability to stare down anyone necessary to ensure the financial strength and sustainability of our venture. Our customers see Carol’s signature on contracts and legal documents, and she has served on our Board of Directors as Corporate Secretary since 2013.  No investment project moves forward without the blessing of our cherished business manager.

Corporate Equity Makeup

At Southam Group, we believe in character over color and help people succeed regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or politics.  Our board of directors is controlled (60%) by strong, talented women and we qualify as a woman-owned minority business.  We do not, however, use that fact to help us win or deliver work, our ethos is to stand on our work, our track record, and the word of so many of our clients where we form genuine relationships.
