Tamara Bowens

Bowens is never afraid of a challenge, and she’s proved it by recently transitioning from a marketing to a sales role. She oversees revenue attainment, expense management, and operational performance inside sales and retention centers. She also partners with the marketing team on messaging and targeted offers to attract new clients, upsell current customers, and reduce churn. Another challenge Bowens doesn’t fear? Challenging the status quo. She doesn’t shy away from asking questions and enjoys collaborating on forward-thinking ideas. Her leadership, approachability, and open mind have made her a trusted advisor and mentor. “I am a member of the formal mentorship program for Charter’s Multicultural and Women’s business resource group. In addition, I mentor many other ethnically diverse employees as I believe mentorship is the foundation for a successful career,” she says. “When hiring, I always ask the recruiter to put forward a diverse slate of candidates. Representation matters and is important to any organization.”

 

How have you been a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion?
I am a member of the formal mentorship program for Charter’s Multicultural and Women’s business resource group. In addition, I mentor many other ethnically diverse employees as I believe mentorship is the foundation for a successful career. Additionally, when hiring I always ask the recruiter to put forward a diverse slate of candidates. Representation matters and is important to any organization.

My best advice for fostering open, honest communication…
Don’t be afraid to admit that you don’t understand something. Honesty not only fosters understanding, but also creativity.
