"Harrell’s skills have clearly served her well in the various management positions she’s held at InfoSpace, US West Communications and Microsoft, where she currently serves as general manager of the enterprise sales strategy group.
"While executive director of the United Way of King County from 1997 to 2000, Harrell led the chapter to successive national fundraising records and wide recognition for excellence in marketing communications and brand management. She grew the non-profit from the 14th to the largest United Way program in the country.
"But Harrell considers giving back to the community more than a job. She began her career at Pacific Northwest Bell in 1983, where she and her colleagues were encouraged to volunteer in the community. She has served on a host of boards, including Seattle Urban League, YWCA and the Salvation Army. She’s currently a trustee of the Seattle Art Museum and the UW’s Evans School of Public Affairs and is a member of the International Women's Forum."
