UpLight

We uplift the Voices of our clients and employees in order to impact positive change

Hi, I am
Koffi Harrison,
The President
of Uplight

I spent a decade in the Intelligence Industry and additional years in the Pharmaceutical Industry managing today, while building tomorrow successes.

I have led and supported teams up to 90 people and more than $230M+ in size. Through progressively challenging roles, I realized that it was more than focusing solely on managing the schedule, scope and cost. What I do best is join your team with care and a genuine goal for all involved to be walking in their greatness. No activity or detail is too small. Supporting others brings me joy.

I have an M.B.A. from the Smith School of Business and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Hampton University (the real HU). I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., the National Society of Black Engineers and National Black MBA Association.

No matter what the program and project management functions are called, I truly believe it is essential to the success of any business, organization or activity.

Why
I Joined Hutch

“You’re always one decision away from a totally different life.” -Warren Buffet

My mother was battling Stage III cancer, which had me reevaluating a lot. One thing that remained consistent was the belief in myself and an idea I had for years, previously acted upon to no avail. I had recently resigned from a job that did not value diversity of thought or differing voices, so much so that I had received negative evaluations caused by my stuttering (pausing too long / too much silent space). After someone asked me “”why not now,”” I heard about Hutch. This was an unprecedented opportunity to try again with others and through the support and guidance of a company (Fearless) that had organically grown by being true to what they stand for and believe. I didn’t have to have all the answers on day one (my company was known as Asterisk); I didn’t even have a company name. That let me know this would be an open and safe environment to learn and grow, as well as be held accountable.
