Elaine Bautista Operations and HR Manager
Elaine Bautista

Bringing over 8 years of experience to the Caiman team, Elaine joined Caiman as a manager from Accenture.  Elaine has since expanded her role to be Caiman’s Operations and HR Manager, after seeing an opportunity to grow the best firm with the best people and policies. Using her Change Management skills, she hopes to initiate effective policies and expansions within the Caiman team. 

In her past role as a consultant, Elaine worked with a variety of clients both in the Seattle and Bay Area where her strategic planning, change management, and business transformation work has prepared her for her role as Operations and HR Manager. She graduated from the University of Washington’s Michael G. Foster Business School with a degree in Information Systems and Finance.

When not in the office, Elaine loves spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys running, either after her toddler, or to prepare for a half marathon. She also has a not-so-secret passion for wedding planning. Elaine finds wedding planning to be much like consulting involving people and project management, with a rewarding outcome for brides and grooms. In addition to these activities, Elaine is a true proponent of giving back to the community through her church, fundraising, and volunteering.
