Buckhead Business Consultants, an award winning sales and marketing firm, was recently named a Best and Brightest Company to Work For.
“This is a huge honor and belongs to the team”, says Managing Partner, Amber. The team at Buckhead Business Consultants consistently exceeds expectations for our clients, customers, and employees, so although a surprise, it was much deserved.
Best and Brightest categories that we excelled in are:
– Diversity and inclusion

– Employee education and development and
– Strategic company performance
Our team collaborates to drive company performance at all levels in a proactive and meaningful way. We are connected to our work and firm, further driving retention. We attempt to understand and adapt to our teams needs by looking at the team as a whole and understanding each individual, as well as the work environment. By continuing to create an environment that encourages and supports career development, we will maintain the path to growth for our firm and the team.
Amber has most recently become the Managing Partner at Buckhead Business Consultants. Graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s in Psychology, she has become a huge asset to the team.
It is a goal for Buckhead Business Consulting to have offices around the U.S. Most recently, the firm expanded into Austin, TX. Managing Partner, Taylor, took a team and opened the location just one month ago today. Since then, the team is doing big things! The firm is producing great results for our client and is continuing to grow rapidly in the city.
Taylor is one of the hardest working people I know, says CEO Jessica. Starting in June of 2013, Taylor was attracted to the work hard play hard mentality of Buckhead Business Consulting. Since being with the firm, he has really learned to maximize his full potential, both personally and professionally. He is excited to provide others with the same opportunities that he was provided, such as mentoring, coaching, traveling, development, leadership, and management. Taylor says, “My favorite part about this career is the genuine friendships I have made along the way.”
Taylor is continuing to do his part by coming through for not only the team, but the client. He plans on hitting all expectations and bonuses in his first few months open to be able to continue to grow the firm. He also has high retention, retaining quality customers for our client. Being open just a month, Taylor has hit the ground running.
A book that he recommends that has helped him become more successful is “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. When asking him what is in his briefcase on a daily basis, he says, ” My Covey Planner, my cell phone, correction tape, and a list of his team.” He also says he always has a coffee in hand! “A planner is key in running a business. One must plan not only daily, but weekly and monthly to make sure we are on track to hit goals. And as for the correction tape, well, it’s a must have! It’s okay to make mistakes, move things around, and add things to the schedule and as a manager, the change constantly keeps me on my toes.”
When asked to give some advice to a new person starting here, Taylor was brief by saying, “Carpe Diem”. This firm has taught me so much and you just need to make the most of the present in order to hit your goals in the future.

Buckhead Business Consulting gives back to the community in various ways each year. Most recently, the team hosted a free car wash to raise funds and awareness for Operation Smile. In just a few short hours, the firm was able to raise enough money for one child to have a free, life changing, surgery.
Buckhead Business Consulting always finds ways to give back the community. In the past, the team has done work with Atlanta’s Dress for Success, Foodbanks, and Operation Smile. Now, with all of the talk and awareness made to ALS, the team will be attending this year’s Third Annual Dine-Out Benefit for ALS, in memory of Larry Collins. The event is being held at Vickerys in Glenwood Park this Thursday, September 4th, from 6-11pm. The team will be attending to show their support, donate, raise awareness, and network with the local community. A portion of the sales for the day will be donated, along with raffles, drawings, and Bingo!
“Giving back to the community is a great way for small businesses to allow our colleagues to collaborate for a greater cause,” says Jessica. “We are fortunate to have so many great people at Buckhead Business Consulting that jump on board for any and all charity events. It allows the team to broaden their experience and learn new things that they are passionate about.”
The staff is looking forward to this week’s event! For more information, please call our Human Resources Department.
