Deborah Varwig

Professional Woman of the Year (2015-2016)

About Me

My name is Deborah Varwig. I am a Partner at Springboard Resources, a Management Consulting firm in the greater Chicago area that serves a wide range of companies and not-for-profit institutions, including entrepreneurial start-ups, small to midsize businesses, and Fortune 500 companies. We are privileged to have several woman-owned and women-led businesses and organizations as our clients.

All Partners at Springboard Resources have served as CEOs, Presidents and/or Founders of our own successful businesses, so we are uniquely qualified to understand and address the needs of businesses and their leaders. We serve as trusted business advisors who work collaboratively with our clients. We also serve as thought leaders to help our clients understand and strategically respond to emerging market trends.

My skills and areas of expertise include profitability improvement, market and competitive analysis, business planning, change management, marketing and sales strategies, operations improvements, customer acquisition and relationship management, growth strategies, organizational restructuring, executive mentoring, and not-for-profit and social enterprise management.

I am involved with several Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management organizations including the Kellogg Executive Women's Network, Kellogg Alumni Entrepreneurs, the Kellogg Finance Club, Kellogg Strategy and Business Development, and the Kellogg Alumni Social Impact Group. I am also a Trustee of the Barrington Council for the Gifted and Talented. My interests include 15 years of volunteer service in the public school system, downhill skiing, international travel, and organizations that support youth and single mothers.

I am the thankful mother of 2 wonderful sons who are both National Merit Scholars in college - one at Vanderbilt University and one at Northwestern University.
