The Conscious Capitalism movement is a mission that gives dedicated entrepreneurs and business leaders the opportunity to share their journey and how they conduct their noble purpose in the organization. As the Conscious Capitalism movement grows, Quennie is excited to help amplify the voices of our community, our Partner Companies, and connect with business leaders who are aligned with our philosophy. She believes that humanity is best practiced and encouraged by setting an example.

Quennie holds a B.S. in Marketing from the Rider University School of Business. During her undergraduate years, she was a member of the “Minding our Business” Entrepreneurship program leading and inspiring teams of middle school students to strive for success in the business of their choice. She also enjoyed being a student-athlete on Rider University’s Division I Women’s Soccer team, and acted as the team representative in a majority of events, including the Annual “Women in Sports” Day.

Throughout her professional career, Quennie has over 12 years of experience each in the corporate financial banking sector as a client service professional, and in hospitality as a bartender. She has maintained some great friendships throughout her careers, and looks forward to cultivating more meaningful relationships within the Conscious Capitalism community.  In her spare time, she enjoys cooking and sharing all kinds of cuisine, traveling the globe and learning about different cultures, creating new beverage concoctions, gardening, pottery, reading, and all things soccer, tennis, and F1 racing.

Ownership Award

As Conscious Capitalists, our team members recognize that conscious leadership is a process of continual improvement. We recognize everyone on our team as a leader and our leadership principles guide us as we strive, individually and together, to improve ourselves daily. We seek to recognize and celebrate our leaders when they exemplify our principles in action. For this purpose, we have created an award to recognize and honor our leaders in a public forum and hold them up as examples of true conscious leadership. We are proud to recognize Quennie Potes for her commitment to the Leadership Principle of Ownership.

Leaders are owners. They think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire organization, beyond just their own team, and they never say “that’s not my job". Quennie joined our team just a few months ago, and immediately took this principle to heart. Overwhelmingly, our team is inspired by Quennie's energy, her enthusiasm, her courage to ask questions, her ability to connect the dots and participate in full, and her willingness to jump head-first into any and all of her roles with joy and perseverance and the will to get the job - any job - done to the best of her ability. Please join us in celebrating Quennie for her inspirational commitment to the Leadership Principle of Ownership!
