2021 HW Woman of Influence: Carrie Gusmus


A senior management professional with nearly 30 years of experience, Carrie Gusmus is committed to the honest goal of positively affecting every life she touches, every day. It’s been her singular focus in guiding aggressive company growth and advancing team leadership. From day one, that defining ambition has been at the very core of the Aslan corporate culture, earning Carrie a measure of high loyalty from employees, partners and clientele. At Aslan, Gusmus serves as the president and CEO of the 100% woman owned business. She’s assembled a team of brilliant, powerful and collaborative female leaders who refuse to back down. In starting her own business in a very male heavy industry, Gusmus hopes to influence an entire industry to think about women differently. From P&L management to program management and brand supervision, Carrie is engaged in every aspect of the Aslan business. Since envisioning and opening Aslan in September 2019, she has personally recruited and prepared every member of her staff. She’s written the business plan and negotiated space, technology and contracts. She also facilitates quarterly coaching sessions to help every Aslan employee become the very best version of themselves. By doing business differently, she’s created a thriving company that in just their second year is on track for three-quarters of a billion dollars in funded loans.
