UST Alumna Recognized as 2019 Women on the Move Honoree
By Brittani Wright
Soledad Tanner, MIB '02, founded a business and financial management firm, Soledad Tanner Consulting. The growing firm improves the profit and productivity of businesses of extensive international experience in finance and controlling; strategy and consulting; and performance and metrics in the global logistics and banking industries.
"We help entrepreneurs and small business owners become financially literate, increasing profit and productivity and staying competitive in the marketplace," Tanner said. “Many entrepreneurs struggle because they know their trade, but they don’t have the time, experience or expertise to be business savvy. You have to look at your numbers, even if you don’t like them today.”
Tanner was recognized as a 2019 Women on the Move honoree by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.
Nominated by Texas Executive Women, Tanner was among nine other women who also received certificates of recognition by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Texas State Senator Carol Alvarado and U.S. Rep. Sylvia R. Garcia.
Tanner said the education she provides to clients can lead to a life of adventure and growth.
"Particularly for me, this is about the financial sector," Tanner said. "When we're educated about how our money works, we can make better decisions about how to grow it. Having a business gives you a sense of pride when you see that you're growing and making an impact."
