Vice President, Client Services
Sue Claytor began consulting for TPO, Inc. in 2005, leveraging a foundation of over 20 years of previous HR and business experience. Her work at TPO has involved dozens of assignments with both private sector and non-profit clients where she has worked to help organizations align their business priorities with their people priorities. Highlights include implementing management training and performance management programs for several clients; decreasing turnover at a major client by handling the recruiting directly and training managers in interviewing and hiring; and conducting a major workforce redesign project resulting in increased employee performance.
In 2010, Sue was promoted to a Director at TPO and today is responsible for recruiting, onboarding of new consultants, consultant staff development, and quality assurance for outsourcing and consulting service delivery. “I’m passionate about finding and developing consultants who fit TPO’s unique mold—experts who possess the right mix of HR and business acumen while serving as the trusted heart and soul of their client engagements.”
Sue began her business and HR career with Lillick, McHose and Charles, LLC in Washington, D.C. where her duties included paralegal work, office management and HR. In 1984, Sue joined the Lanman Companies, Inc. where she ultimately became Vice President of Human Resources. In this role, she was responsible for all aspects of corporate HR at five major East Coast locations. After being acquired by World Color Press, Inc., Sue was appointed Regional Vice President of HR in Greenwich, CT.
In 2000, Sue began consulting with Prinexus, Inc., a new marketing solutions company. There, she was responsible for conducting due diligence of potential acquisitions. In June of 2002, she was hired as the Vice President of HR at Prinexus, responsible for all aspects of HR for the company. In 2004, just before joining TPO, Sue returned to consulting by providing executive HR support to various clients throughout the U.S.
Sue received her A.A. in fine arts from Steed College and attended East Tennessee State University.
In her spare time, Sue looks for every opportunity to spend time on the water sailing or boating, except when there is football on TV—especially her beloved Washington Redskins. In between water and football time she scours the city looking for unique jewelry and clothing and enjoys jazz and trying new restaurants.
