Vashon woman honored by business journal

Jennifer Olsen, president of Resourceful HR, was named one of Puget Sound Business Journal’s “40 under 40” — a prestigious award that identifies influential business leaders under age 40 who demonstrate dynamic leadership and excel in their industry and communities.

Olsen, a Vashon resident, founded the company in 2007. Resourceful HR provides temporary employees, recruitment, leadership development, consulting and other human resources-related needs to businesses. Olsen also hosts the Northwest HR Best Practices Roundtable and serves as board president of AHOPE for Children, a nonprofit focused on assistance for vulnerable children in Ethiopia.

The business journal’s award, now in its 14th year, selected the 40 young businesspeople from among more than 400 nominations.

Gordon Prouty, the business journal’s publisher, said this year’s class joins 520 past winners “who have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in both career and community. They represent a diverse group of industries and background and demonstrate the innovation, energy and commitment that has made our region great, and will continue to make our region great moving forward.”
