Tracy Cutone, 36
General manager, human resources, Winter, Wyman
"I oversee the HR contracts and our permanent division. Our client companies come to us with openings, and we place professionals in appropriate positions.
"I started out as an individual contributor and worked up to the head of two divisions. During that time, I had four children, and found Winter, Wyman such a family-friendly employer, offering flexible scheduling. I have a lot of autonomy and the ability to structure my business around the needs of my family.
"This company is all about people, and I've had great opportunities to add to my repertoire and enhance my knowledge base."
