Amanda A. Russo
Founder & CEO
Born and raised in New York, and the founder and CEO of Cornerstone Paradigm Consulting, LLC . A notable true solutionist. I have spent most of my career solving the “how" of what my clients do, for them to effectively carry out the "what" of what they do well. I pride myself on being resourceful, a great collaborator, and an asset to any solution-based team in my field.
My goal is to help as many companies reach their goals of efficiency with exceptional customer experience. I uniquely customize solutions to address the client’s specific needs, providing both strategy and implementation...a quality my clients appreciate and is why they love to work with me.
As an industry-agnostic operational professional, I have had the privilege of working with decision-makers in businesses of every size both domestically and internationally. I founded this company with the vision to be the premier business coach working with clients to resolve pressing business operations issues.
Friends and colleagues will tell you" she was always drawn to problem-solving, but notably, problem-solving for me really began in early 2000 on a trading floor of a small broker-dealer. Although manually processes were common, and technology was only beginning to show up as a necessity in corporate America, I naturally gravitated to the problems and looked for ways to solve them."
Since then, I have worked both privately and now as a consultant for companies all over the world with complex issues that held them back from reaching their goals.
I hold a B.S.c in Finance from Fordham Gabelli School of Business. I’m WBE certified with the Port Authority of NY & NJ, NYC WBE and WOSB certified. Additionally, I am also a certified diverse supplier for over 25 for-profit companies including Google, and a certified diverse supplier in all 50 states.
When I'm not working I'm a self-proclaimed home chef and globe trotter looking for eateries where the locals go.
