You may have never heard of her hometown of Houston, Mississippi, but you will undoubtedly hear about Erin, rising up and comer here at South Inc Nashville! In just a short half year, Erin has moved into an executive administrative assistant role, aiding in both the organization of our executive team and efficiency of sales operations. With such a bright star under our roof, we felt it was time to let her shine and tell the world all about Miss. Erin Harmon!
Born and raised in North Mississippi and then Jackson, MS, Erin grew up the product of two extremely hard working parents…and DIEHARD Ole Miss fans. She naturally moved to Oxford for college to attend the University of Mississippi and bleeds red and blue to this day! HOTTY TODDY!
Studying Hospitality Management and Business Administration, Erin strengthened her natural communication and people skills, all the while working to support herself and her education. Serving clients, while working in the restaurant industry, such as Morgan Freeman, Michael Oher and Leigh Anne Touhy (the inspirations of The Blind Side), Erin learned how to stay calm under pressure, exceed expectations and work in a team; all qualities she uses daily at South Inc Nashville.
After graduating from Ole Miss, Erin, and significant other Blair, chose to move to Nashville, a dream of hers since childhood. A country music fan and gifted singer herself, Erin revels in the fact that she finally made it to “Music City” and spends weekends exploring the best of Nashville with Blair and pup, Layla!
Starting originally in our firm’s coveted Management Training Program, Erin quickly made an impression with our Executive team for her commitment to our client and her ability to take and implement coaching. She was quickly offered a position within our Human Resources team a month shy of starting and has found her niche here, most recently helping our office with the HUGE transition to Salesforce (a cloud based customer relationship management service).
We asked Erin who motivates her and she speaks of her 18 year old sister, parents, grandparents (who are entrepreneurs) and our Marketing Manager, Hannah. She talks about the growth she’s seen in herself, how confident she is with her future at South and where she sees herself in 5 years; with a Masters and helping our organization grow 20 offices in size!
The gratitude we have to Erin, for the person she is and the decision she made to join our family is immense. We believe we’re surrounded by the biggest stars in Nashville; hers burning as bright as her personality! If you can’t find Erin in the office, she spends her time outside of work shopping, antiquing and home decorating. She’s got a passion for fashion and flair, as you can tell by her hair (did you catch that rhyme?!!) She’s fun, she’s focused and she’s definitely destined for success.
