Inspiring Speaker. Successful Business Consultant. Champion Entrepreneur.
Andrea is in high demand for her extensive hands-on experience growing successful businesses. This Founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar national company built from a $5,000 initial investment, is available for guidance in areas of building solid sales and growth, team motivation, consulting, developing sales processes and sound operating procedures, and improving operational excellence.
Building on a Foundation of Success
While working her way through school at Georgia Tech as a concierge at the Hyatt Regency, Andrea realized that busy executives and professionals would benefit most from their own concierge. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Management in 1989, Andrea knew she wanted to develop a company that made a positive impact on people’s everyday lives, and she has been able to do so for millions of people through her company. With her life savings of $5000 and a dream, she started 2 Places At 1 Time, running errands from her home.
2 Places was the nation’s first provider of employer-subsidized, corporate concierge services. After founding 2 Places in 1991, Andrea expanded the Atlanta-based firm to locations throughout the US and Canada and garnered the honor of being named to Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing privately held companies in the US for two consecutive years. In addition, she was selected as one of Catalyst Magazine’s Top 50 Entrepreneurs for 2002 and top five for 2000, a regional finalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year competition and nominated as a 2002 “Georgia Tech Woman of Distinction”. Andrea was also featured in the first issue of Catalyst Magazine as one the “5 Professionals Changing the Way We Do Business In Atlanta” and named “An Outstanding Georgia Citizen” by Secretary of State, Cathy Cox. Andrea recently completed a taping of her story as part of Georgia Tech’s “Living Legends” program.
She Is Off And Running.
Additionally, Andrea led her previous company, a professional services firm, in their national sales effort, which resulted in exponential growth. She is poised to do the same with her new firm, TimeSquared Concierge and is off and running. Andrea was able to skillfully cash flow this tremendous growth and also weather the significant economic downturns, both without taking on outside investors or amassing tremendous debt.
Andrea’s wealth of professional experience, her passion for operational excellence, her commitment to growth, and her infectious enthusiasm are a winning combination. This is the best investment you can make in your business!
