Sue Nash, Wonder Woman at Helix Linear Technolgies, is our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer.
Meet Sue Nash (or as we refer to her internally -- Wonder Woman), our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer. She wears many hats at Helix, with her key focus areas being cost reduction and increased operations efficiency. Sue has a long history in the manufacturing world, and we are truly honored that she decided to join our team.
In college, Sue majored in Accountancy and secured two internships in tax/audit accounting at Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC). Upon graduation, she was invited to continue her work there and did so for many years.
In the fall of 2019, Helix Linear Technologies went in search of a person to help foster its continued growth. CEO Chris Nook had a LinkedIn connection to an employee at PwC where Sue had previously worked, and found her profile. Noting her extensive career in manufacturing and substantial financial background, Chris immediately reached out. The best part of this story: unbeknownst to Sue, her husband opened Chris's inquiry and replied that she was indeed interested in the job. The rest is history. Chris hired Sue that September and Helix has been reaping the rewards of her knowledge and hard work ever since.
"The most rewarding part of my job is seeing everyone on a team who truly wants to see this company succeed," Sue told us as we asked about her Helix-perience. "We all work together in different parts of the company. We have to, so we get it all done!"
Another critical point Sue likes to emphasize as part of her efficiency strategy is the importance of learning multiple aspects of the business -- outside of your typical job description.
"If I had to give one piece of advice to someone in manufacturing or business, it would be to stay with a company for several years, or more, if you have the opportunity," Sue said. "When I worked for previous manufacturers, I got to learn every aspect of the business, not just tax auditing or accounting, and that greatly contributed to my career path and growth."
