Kim Arellano


Kim Arellano spent 19 years in the high-tech industry working her way through will and talent from admin positions through sales positions and finally as a regional director of sales for a multi-billion dollar tech company. Kim has a talent for mobilizing leaders and creating strategic vision and direction. She is very goal oriented and organized in her approach, while maintaining an atmosphere of support and encouragement of ideas.

As Kim progressed through her career she found that she had a growing interest in tackling a difficult problem she observed in her corporate tenure— a lack of understanding in how to create a space for innovation and creativity to thrive in the workplace. As a leader she often felt there was a better way to secure even more corporate success that embraces the human potential to be highly effective. Kim’s vision, mission and passion are to help corporate America encourage a humanistic approach to the workforce. She believes that by capturing and empowering creativity of individual workers, organizations can create the next wave of innovation through empowering healthy intrinsic motivation, and minimizing personal, departmental and generational conflict. This effort requires a deeper understanding of systems thinking, human motivation and behavior, all of which highlight Kim’s demonstrated skills and talents.

Kim holds a B.S. degree in Human Services Management and Masters of Science in Psychology, with a focus on organizational psychology. She is currently a doctoral student studying Millennial Leadership and organizational systems at Saybrook University. Kim is a trusted Practitioner and Human Resources Professional (PHR), who works within organizations to identify areas of leadership to ensure organizational success.
