Karen Walker is the president and principal consultant at Oneteam, Inc., a consulting firm that helps senior leaders create internal strategies that support their organizations’ external growth.
Decades ago, Karen helped create the (then) fastest growing company in American history: Compaq Computer. After working at Compaq for fourteen years, she left to begin Oneteam.
She now serves as an executive advisor and consultant to CEOs and senior organization leaders to grow their companies — with outcomes including IPOs, acquisitions, market share increases, and dramatic leadership development. Karen’s work has enabled sustained growth in a multitude of companies, from startups to Fortune 500 firms, including Aetna and BMC Software.
Karen has a B.S. degree in engineering from Texas A&M University and graduated from the ODHRM program at Columbia University. She has served on advisory committees to Rice University and Texas A&M University, and on the executive board of The Alley Theatre.
She resides in Jupiter, FL, although she can most often be found aloft in seat 2C.
A little more backstory ...
Karen's path to consulting is a direct result of two inflection points: meeting Dr. Bob Moore (now her husband) and her deep seated commitment to working and living congruently . Dr. Bob founded Oneteam's predecessor company, working in clinical, organization and sports psychology settings. One note-able highlight of his long and productive career is his position as coach for the U.S. skydiving team Airspeed and their 12 consecutive world championships. After a decade of c0-leadership of Oneteam, Bob retired from corporate work to teach Tai Chi, and can often be found on the business end of a saltwater fishing pole.
Her clients say that her move from corporate leader to strategic consultant has given them the opportunity to realize powerful capabilities and results. She works with individuals and organizations in a wide variety of settings and industries.
