Nicole B. Comer, Founder and CEO
As Founder and CEO of CE-SOLUTIONS, Nicole fosters a personal philosophy that has become synonymous with the company’s vision — to add value by enhancing people’s success.
Under Nicole’s leadership, CE-SOLUTIONS has grown from two employees and two local clients to numerous mid-market, global and Fortune 500 companies. With an internal staff of nearly 100 and a contract employee roster that numbers in the hundreds, CE-SOLUTIONS is one of the fastest-growing women owned staffing firms in the region. Nicole’s unique leadership style — thinking as a Client first and CEO second — has earned her countless accolades and acknowledgements as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and mentor. Her latest achievements include the 2015 Brava! SmartCEO Award, a place on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies, and finalist for the 2015 SmartCEO Marcum Innovator of the Year Award.
Nicole is a powerful business trailblazer whose entrepreneurial instincts and clarity of vision have carried CE-SOLUTIONS through rapid and continuous growth. Years spent in corporate America established her proficiency and expertise in recruiting and information technology that has become the gold standard she now imparts to her clients. With an unwavering commitment to meeting and exceeding customer expectations, she does not just set ambitious goals — she motivates people to deliver.
Nicole knows that it’s critical to the company’s vision that each employee implicitly understands the client’s pain points as well as their specific methodology. Developing a proprietary recruiting process which includes identifying the client’s recruiting goals, work culture, critical success factors, strategic and tactical plans, and organization structure — illustrates how CE-SOLUTIONS selects and places its candidates, defining the company tagline: Your Vision, Our Priority.
Nicole has made a notable impact not only on the company, but in her community as well. After realizing her dream of starting CE-SOLUTIONS, she wanted to give back. A passionate philanthropist and advocate of “paying it forward,” Nicole devotes much of her personal and corporate resources to the community. CE-SOLUTIONS helps to enrich the lives of others both locally and globally by supporting and sponsoring many diverse causes and organizations.
Throughout her career, Nicole has embraced personal and business development skills built on passion, integrity and service orientation, an approach that has led to exceptional, personalized outcomes along with many long-standing client relationships.
