Meet Our Team

Molly Eyerman

Founder + CEO

VIVO was founded by Molly Eyerman in 2016. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business with an MS in accountancy, Molly began her professional career in finance, working a PricewaterhouseCoopers in transaction services. As her career advanced, however, she was increasingly fascinated by the ability of people and culture to create a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

After transitioning from finance to human resources, Molly left corporate America to launch her own HR consultancy, which ultimately grew to become VIVO Growth Partners.

  • “Adding VIVO’s services to the mix has been critical for [our leaders] and we couldn’t be more happy with our engagement. I’m not sure how we would have handled all of the recent hiring and other situations/efforts without having them.”

    — Josh Gratsch, Chief Operating Officer, Ascend Innovations
  • “Hiring VIVO has been life changing! As a small company, HR duties tend to fall to the person willing to take them on, which for our organization was me… a numbers person. It quickly became evident that not only was it taking more time than anticipated, but it was work I didn’t enjoy, and our team was not getting the service they needed – or deserved. When I initially met with Molly, the services she told me they would offer sounded too good to be true, and 3+ years later, they’ve exceeded all expectations! Katie and Molly respond promptly and professionally to all inquiries, and have become highly-valued members of our team. I don’t know what we’d do without them!”

    — Molly Engle, EVP, The Zimmerman Companies
