Employee Spotlight: Consonus HP Expert, Tara Huddleston
Pronounced "Tear-ah" as in Scarlett's mansion from Gone With the Wind, Tara Huddleston
is new to Consonus
but by no means a technology novice.
brings to Consonus
over 20 years of enterprise-level sales and account management expertise and over a decade of experience selling Hewlett-Packard (HP) solutions.
As HP Program Manager and Senior Account Executive, Tara is the central point of contact for HP with responsibilities that involve deal coordination, translating HP messaging for products and services, plus training and communications.
Current accounts include Premier
, Lash Group
, and American Tire Distributors
"I have been selling HP
enterprise-class products for most of my 20-plus-year career and have worked for HP
for the last twelve, so I'm very knowledgeable and passionate about their products and services.
I hope to use this experience to make it as simple, and as painless as possible, for Consonus to become a very strong and successful HP Partner," says Tara.
Clients and peers alike find her
engaging as she
is cheerful and approachable with always a story to tell.
Working for Consonus has proven to be a good career match as Tara explains, "I was first attracted to Consonus by the strong portfolio mix of data center-focused solutions and by the strong sense of employee camaraderie I got when I interviewed.
Six months later I haven't been disappointed in the least and I'm thrilled to be part of the team."
A self-described "Navy brat," Tara
has lived all over the world, spending a majority of her
time in Indiana prior to coming to Charlotte almost 14 years ago.
She lives in the southern part of Charlotte with husband Tim, a freelance technical writer, and her two beautiful daughters with personalities that are completely opposite of one another - the dainty Savannah and the sporty Lucy.
Add two rescued Labrador-mix mutts, two toads, and a parrot named Daisy to the mix, it's a wonder she
took up running - how else would she
get any peace and quiet?!
