Terre Christensen - Refinery, Lubricants and Cement
Senior Vice President
Terre Christensen’s diverse work experience has covered a multitude of leadership and business arenas. Owner of three successful businesses in residential home design, wholesale art, and youth athletics, she has honed skills in organization, management, networking, and customer service. Whether coaching or managing, she is an attentive partner in helping people to achieve their goals.
As President and Administrator for a home design company for the last 23 years, Terre’s understanding of quality customer care and integrity translate directly to a successful search effort. Long standing relationships with local builders over the years have taught her the value and power of networking. In the wholesale business, she has developed a strong grasp of supply, demand, attention to detail, time sensitive deadlines, and strong communication.
Terre served as CEO and head coach of a competitive swim team taking the team from 30 to 120 participants over 8 years, and developing Olympic Trials qualifiers and high school All Americans. Developing a balanced team culture, Terre established a 501c3 booster organization to provide financial stability. She developed a strategic plan for the team as a business and developed staff and athletes to cultivate a ‘next level’ training environment as well as a mentoring program which has helped many of her swimmers advance into coaching. With an eye for talent, Terre was able to take a recreational program and evolve it into one of the most respected and successful teams in the state of Colorado.
A Colorado native, Terre, her husband and their two adult daughters enjoy time in the mountains skiing, snowboarding, and four-wheeling. Swimming is part of her weekly routine and she spends many leisure hours in her pottery studio.
"I highly recommend Terre Christensen if you are looking for a great recruiter. Terre was personally engaged from her initial contact with me through the entire process until I was hired. Terre professionally coached and prepared me for all interactions with my prospective employer and made the process easy and comfortable. I feel I made a friend who was interested in my success and the success of the organization I now call home. Thank you Terre!"
"Terre recruited me for a new position with my current company. Having worked with one or two recruiters in the past few years, I have to say that Terre's approach demonstrated an honest concern for the softer aspects of the transition. Not only did she do the work to insure that I was a good match for the company culture, but she supported me throughout the entire process, communicating frequently to insure that I was able to negotiate the difficulties of giving notice to my old company. I honestly felt that Terre had my interests as a high priority, and she made the transition easier than it could have been. I would work with Terre again in the future without hesitation."
"Terre made my difficult transition practically flawless, and she helped me get an incredibly desirable job at an incredibly desirable salary. She helped me to feel needed and gave me the confidence I needed to make a change for the better! I would recommend her to just about anyone looking in this field for a new position. My entire family thanks you, Terre! Best of luck in your future endeavors!!"
"Terre did a terrific job for me recruiting a key person for Cool Planet. She was very good at keeping all the details in line, but did not lose track of the big picture. Bottom line: Terre delivered. she got us the right person in very short order and at a reasonable rate. I highly recommend Terre."
"Long story short: I was not actively looking for a change professionally speaking. Then Terre came along. After a couple of emails and phone calls within a timeframe of two weeks did three very successful interviews with excellent results and got an offer on the third. I was stationed in the middle of nowhere in central Mexico working as a maintenance coordinator for the heavy industry. Got myself catapulted to beautiful Atlanta, GA, full benefits for me and my family and here I am, living in the States, got a managerial position in a transnational corporate. How's that for a change? Thank you Terre!"
