Blue Beyond Consulting

Mary Hettinger

Mary joined Blue Beyond in 2016 as a consultant after a robust and varied career centered on employee engagement, executive communications, and organizational change management and culture.

She has held positions with Fortune 500 companies (e.g., Staples, Textron, EMC – now Dell EMC) and nonprofits, and operated her own consulting company for seven years, helping boost employee engagement with such organizations as Lockheed Martin, Fidelity Investments, Royal Bank of Scotland, Liberty Mutual, MGM Grand, and Tyco Healthcare. Whether it’s a frontline associate in retail or manufacturing, a CEO in the corporate office, or a business unit, Mary has gained nuanced insights into how to engage all levels of employees over her career.

Mary is passionate about listening into the organization, building a clear and compelling strategy, and executing on the strategy as she strives to continually simplify the complicated for today’s overwhelmed workforce. She is known for being a strategic thinker with great execution and team leadership skills.

She has been active in the International Association of Business Communicators, having served as President of the Board for the Yankee (New England) chapter, and is honored to hold an IABC Gold Quill award for an employee engagement/culture project.

Mary earned a B.S. in Journalism with a Psychology minor, and her MFA in Arts Administration (combining Organizational Communications, Public Relations, and Theater) from Ohio University.
