Lisa Edmondson Buettner ’87: Management Consultant
Lisa Buettner helps some of the world’s major companies develop their senior leaders’ skills. For instance, she helped sales leaders at Hewlett Packard develop strategic acumen and rise from selling products to selling “solutions.” She helped global directors at Cinépolis, the world’s fourth-largest cinema firm, more effectively lead the firm’s multinational growth. “Being able to contribute not only to a company’s success, but to an individual’s professional success, is very rewarding,” she says. Lisa followed her Gordon business major with a master’s in organizational development, and worked for a management consulting firm before founding Anchor Consulting in 1994. Her work for HP and Xerox has netted national awards. Family ties to Gordon are strong: Lisa and her husband Cedric ’87 have endowed a scholarship for a business student at Gordon, and their son Jake is a sophomore; daughter Michelle is in high school.
