About Our Co-Moderators:

Sue Butler

Throughout her career Sue's role has been that of a solutions provider and "connector". Having spent over 26 years in corporate business development and executive search, she has a unique perspective into what drives organizations and makes them grow. Sue has owned several successful businesses, served as senior management in two start-ups, and has partnered with numerous high-growth companies to help them move their business plans forward and achieve outstanding and profitable results.

Most recently, she ran her own boutique search practice, placing executives nationwide in the global talent mobility industry. Earlier in her career, Sue was honored nationally for her work with Fortune 1000 companies that relocate new hires and employees and also assisted them in the design and administration of their corporate relocation programs. Later, she served as Vice President of Sales for a top Atlas Agent and managed a team that sold corporate relocation services to major U.S. companies, the State Department, NGO's, and other organizations that relocate employees around the globe.

Earlier this year, Sue joined the Keri Shull Team (KST) and is very excited to bring their award winning real estate and relocation services to growing companies and organizations within the Mid Atlantic. Additionally, she will be marketing KST's real estate expertise to DC metro companies to educate their employees on the home buying and selling process. Find Sue on LinkedIn here.
