Arielle Evans Karsch
I bring over ten years of experience working in operations. I've worked for companies like Bluey Bryn, McMaster Car and Away before I went off on my own as a consultant in fractional operator. And then I've been doing that since 2019. Over the last four plus years I've been working with a lot of different sized companies, bringing a lot of the same things with a lot of different companies. I work on things like 3PL, integrations, holiday planning, so I repeat a lot of these things over and over again with different companies. I've become an expert on what's best in class and what companies are looking for.
