A transformational change is underway at simpleQuE and it evolves around the role of Deanne Sparr, who was lured to the company in 2014 following several years of active recruitment. After just 15 months, she has been promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, which will allow simpleQuE to continue using her depth of experience in training, auditing and consulting services to help the company implement new systems and processes to handle significant growth.
“Deanne’s promotion is a huge deal for the objectives and solidity of this company because she has the ability to help us take simpleQuE to the next level,” said president and owner Jim Lee. “We’ve doubled in size the last two years and have aggressive growth plans for the next three years. With her expanded role and responsibilities as Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Deanne has the ability to influence and contribute toward additional growth and create additional value for SimpleQuE.”
Deanne’s impressive background includes over a dozen years of third-party auditing for all sizes of companies in a variety of standards (ISO, automotive, environmental), in addition to previously operating her own successful consulting firm. Her exceptional problem-solving and project management skills make her an ideal executive leader.
“I joined the simpleQuE team because I saw the value in being a part of an organization that can provide more clients with a larger availability of services than I could on my own,” Deanne said. “I love to help people and see businesses prosper when they adopt good management system practices. We have a phenomenal team in place here, and I am thrilled for our future.”
The pursuit of Deanne may have ended last year, but the excitement at simpleQuE is just beginning.
