SuCo Spotlight June ’23 – Courtney Kranz

This month SuCo wants to spotlight our Operations and Data Manager, Courtney Kranz. Courtney has been an integral part of the SuCo team for almost four years now. During her tenure, she has helped as an Office Manager, Ops Leader and Data Manager all the while showing great grit and determination to move our business forward.  She is a rock solid performer who dives into all our verticals, is a vital key in managing our data flow to our business partners, always has a pulse on company culture and does it all with a team first attitude.  We are thankful for the years of dedication and hard work, for all these reasons and more, we have chosen to spotlight Courtney this month. Take a minute to learn a little more about Courtney…

How has SuCo’s mentorship program helped you with your professional development?

This program and Christina Olver (my mentor) have helped me grow as a leader and given me an opportunity to learn leadership skills that are oftentimes learned only from experience. We’ve covered topics such as delegation, performance management, and communicating up. I joined this program just as I was becoming a leader and having a mentor to work with on the new world of management was so helpful because being a good leader isn’t always intuitive. Part of it is learning through experience and through others so having valuable advice and insight from Christina really helped shaped who I am as a leader. I so appreciate that SuCo offered this opportunity, and that Christina shared her time with me as she runs the Home Services vertical and is absolutely killing it!

What keeps you motivated and focused each day?

My husband and I have a spunky and sassy two year old daughter so most everything I do is motivated by those two. Working at SuCo keeps me motivated and focused for a number of reasons. One is that there is so much to do all the time, so I have a lot to focus on. More seriously, I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by incredible people who keep me motivated and focused by their example and kicking butt every day. One thing I have always loved about SuCo is that creativity and thinking outside the box is always welcomed and encouraged. I love having the ability to make direct impacts–that in itself keeps me motivated. 

Who are some of your biggest influences and why?

My Grandmother is one of my biggest influences. She passed away 6 years ago but I strive to be like her–she worked so incredibly hard her entire life and did everything with love and kindness. She also made the best pies so I use her as inspo there as well 🙂 I also just have to mention Taylor Swift (I’m going to her tour stop in Denver in a few weeks!!) as one of my biggest influences because the drive and determination she has is unparalleled. 

If you could be any cartoon character, who would you be and why?
