Meet Mary Harmon Tyson, our new Consultant Recruiter
Mary Harmon Tyson
Our team just got bigger!
As planned, 2018 is shaping up to be a year of tremendous growth at CFO Alliance. We couldn’t be more thrilled! And that’s where Mary comes in. As our Consultant Recruiter, she’ll concentrate on finding talented financial leaders with the skills to deliver excellent quality service to our clients.
Prior to joining CFO Alliance, Mary worked as an auditor at PwC in Dallas. Before moving to Texas, Mary lived in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Accounting and Marketing and a certification in Professional Sales, earning a 4.0 GPA. She attributes her success to “not missing class and good time management skills.”
Her talent and love for recruiting became apparent at college, where she served as a Campus Recruiter for more than 3 years, providing tours and guidance for prospective students. Given her natural leadership abilities, Mary also served as president of her sorority while at Alabama.
Recently moving to Tampa, Mary is looking forward to networking while experiencing the city!
On a personal level:
Mary tells us about life outside of work.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love just about any type of workout. I especially love to run. I have run many half marathons and hope to run a full soon. I am also a huge fan of Pure Barre and Orange Theory classes. I did a mud run of obstacle courses in mud and through lakes. It was a challenge!!
One fun, uncommon fact about you is…
I once spent a summer out in Los Angeles working at the corporate office of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaves. At the time, my passion was marketing, but things changed as I got to see all sides of the business. That’s when I decided I wanted to work in accounting and finance. Who would have ever guessed my love of Butter Pecan flavored coffee would lead to a new career path!
What brings you happiness?
I am a huge fan of volunteer work and helping out in the community. I am most proud of an initiative I led at Alabama. It was called the 5th Quarter Initiative and it took place after every home Alabama football game. A group of about 15 girls and guys would come together and package up all of the leftover stadium food and send it to the West Alabama Food Bank. It was then distributed to the homeless shelters in Alabama.
What’s your favorite book?
My favorite book is titled A Praying Life by Paul Miller. This book is a fantastic read! It’s all about how to incorporate a praying lifestyle into your personal life.
