BluWave Team Interviews | Hannah Welsh, Independent Consultant Specialist


April 29, 2022

By: Delaney Walker

Within our Intelligent Marketplace, we have a deep bench of both service provider groups and independent consultants that uniquely meet the private equity standard. To ensure we always have the independents our clients need when they need them, we have team members dedicated to mapping the market and onboarding individuals that are a great fit. Hannah Welsh sits on our Research & Operations team and is focused on building out our bench of interim executives. We recently sat down with her to hear a little bit more about her role and why she joined the team.

How did you hear about BluWave and what made you interested in applying & then joining the team?

I first heard about BluWave from Belmont University’s Career Development Office while pursuing my MBA degree in the spring of 2021. I was interested in BluWave because I have always had a passion for challenge and making a difference. I appreciated BluWave’s ability to solve problems for the private equity industry and wanted to learn more about different avenues of business from seasoned executives.

What’s your favorite part about the team and culture?

My favorite part about the team is the positivity and the determination. I love that the whole company, regardless of the individual team, works together. BluWave celebrates each person’s successes and always explains the “why” behind strategic company decisions. Along with this, everyone has such a strong worth ethic and genuinely wants our clients and our business to succeed.

Out of the BluWave Values of “Team, Value, Grow, Win”, what is an example of how you have seen these values play out in your time here?

I see BluWave’s values play out every day. No function here stands alone, we know it takes a team. From marketing to data, to BD and R&O, we all work together to create value for our clients. Here we all grow together as people both personally and professionally!

What’s your background?

I graduated from the University of Evansville in 2020 with a BS in Marketing and Management and then from Belmont University in 2021 with an MBA in Marketing and Strategic Management. BluWave is my first real job!

What’s your favorite part of the job and what do you find most rewarding about it?

My favorite part of this job is meeting so many different independent service providers and hearing their stories. They all have unique backgrounds and I learn a lot from them.

The most rewarding part of the job has to be connecting our team with the right consultant they need for a client’s project. When I help our team connect with the right, exact-fit resources they need, both the clients and consultants succeed and I love getting to play a part in that.

 

Now for the fun stuff, what are your favorite hobbies and activities when you aren’t in the office?

I love to spend time with friends and family and go on runs!

Favorite Nashville restaurant?

Probably Blanco Cocina + Cantina or Edley’s – just depends on the day!

Favorite TV show?

I’m torn – either Peaky Blinders or Ozark.
