CONNECT WITH MAGGIE
With extensive experience at some of the biggest companies in retail, food & beverage, and technology, Maggie Olson has stepped into new roles, new industries, and new businesses and transformed teams from the ground up over and over again.
Imagine building a team, becoming a trusted leader, creating new processes, driving efficiency, and growing successful businesses all in less than a year. With the unique ability to walk into an unfamiliar business, quickly learn and assess how to improve the team and execute lasting changes, this is exactly what Maggie has been doing year after year throughout her career.
Maggie’s versatility and strong orientation for action is unique. Her ability to quickly develop sound but flexible business processes and systems enables teams to scale at a rapid pace, and her executive presence offers leaders confidence and trust. Maggie’s approach is upbeat, curious, collaborative, and culture-first. Her solid business acumen, unwavering curiosity, and genuine passion for employee culture provide her the ability to fill any gaps necessary for a team’s success, and with over two decades of experience leading teams across varying industries and businesses, she has a wealth of tools, resources, and experiences to draw from.
In her most recent corporate role working as Chief of Staff leader to the President of a Fortune 40 company — a multibillion-dollar business with 5,000+ employees — Maggie built the president’s Chief of Staff model from the ground up. In doing so, she created a highly successful team, drove major organizational efficiencies, and implemented executive back office process and structure that will be in place for years to come.
