Ellen Owens-Karcsay

Owner and Transformation Advisor

Ellen is an experienced transformation advisor, supporting businesses and nonprofit organizations through various stages of the organizational lifecycle.  This includes developing change readiness and management plans, assessing organizational capacity, supporting growth initiatives, including acquisition or merger integration, and process improvement.   Ellen is also well-versed in various technology solutions that can enable efficient, effective, and sustainable transformations.


Because of her varied experiences ranging from leading a nonprofit organization to leading a global project management team for a global technology company, Ellen believes that there is not one solution for all. 


Ellen believes that every organization, regardless of size or type, should develop a discipline around understanding processes and people before products.  In practice, this means you must first clarify your desired business processes along with the people and talent responsible for them and then match the solution that enables that process.


​Developing that organizational discipline comes naturally as Ellen is a Certified Personal Trainer and teaches spin classes for fun.    Ellen has competed in many triathlons over the past ten years, including the Arizona Ironman in 2011.


Ellen lives with her husband in Tempe, Arizona, and enjoys the outdoors, hiking, biking, and running.  She enjoys “creating,” which may include something baked, painted, or planted.
