CLOE GUIDRY

CLOE GUIDRY

FOUNDER & CEO

An Agnes Scott College and Georgia State University Executive MBA Alumni and former SVP in two global brokerage firms, Cloe has spent over 16 years successfully helping clients solve challenging issues around supply chain risk and human capital management. She leads teams in identifying client needs, creating custom solutions, and client stewardship. Cloe’s focus areas include business development, sales, identifying diverse partnerships and strategic alliances, strategy, growth initiatives, and access to capital. Cloe founded Hire Ground with the mission of providing new-majority business owners with more opportunities to win supply chain contracts while also enabling enterprise buyers to build and strengthen their supplier diversity programs. As founder and CEO, Cloe is responsible for the overall success of Hire Ground by leading the development and execution of long-term strategies.

We need to create jobs in order to ensure a vibrant economy and substantial tax base. Broad economic participation is needed to support the retiring baby boomer population. Minorities are the fastest growing sector of the population and make up the largest consumer groups but make the smallest contribution to the entrepreneurial economy. This needs to change, for all our sakes. Diverse businesses will have to become leaders in major supply chains as well as the core of the entrepreneurial growth engine. We need to foster their survival, growth to scale, and prosperity.
