Stewardship is fundamentally important to me – striving to leave whatever you work on better than you found it, for those who come after you

As Director of Finance for TE SubCom, Brontë Hamilton enjoys working with the business to solve complex problems. Previously a Major in the Australian Army, Brontë pursued an MBA at Penn State University to transition into a finance role at TE. After working on commodity hedging and corporate financial analysis at TE corporate, Brontë joined SubCom, a TE company that engineers and builds fiber optic subsea networks across the globe. Inspired by the passion and dedication that the SubCom team brings to their products and services, she is honored to have helped build out the finance team and drive a partnership role in delivering sound, forward-looking analytics. From Brontë’s perspective, the ethical culture and sense of integrity is an incredibly valuable part of working for TE.

1

What experiences shaped your career?

A willingness to take thoughtful risk has probably shaped my career the most, by taking on something unconventional or out of my comfort zone.  I’ve been fortunate to work both with and for incredibly smart, dedicated people as well, which I feel has had an immeasurable impact on my own development.

2

What do you enjoy most about working at TE?

The people and the products that we make. I genuinely believe that TE strives to make the world a better, smarter and easier place to live in, which makes it really easy to get up and go to work every day. SubCom has built nearly 40% of the world’s subsea cable systems, the global foundation of the internet, and I get to be part of the team that delivers that.

What concepts and ideas excite you?

I love working on complex problems, and some of the exciting trends I see out there around autonomous driving, additive manufacturing, sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) drive some really difficult questions that I think we need to answer well to be successful as a company.

How do you predict the company will be different in two years, and how do you see yourself shaping that change?

I think TE will continue to evolve in how we help our customers solve their problems in a holistic, solution-oriented way. For finance, I see the function’s role as an integral business partner growing, and I’m working to set the conditions for success for the talent we’ll need to do that.

What advice would you give a new candidate looking to break into the field of technology?What advice would you give a new candidate looking to break into the field of technology?

Never stop learning, and don’t just learn from finance resources. Exercise and develop your professional curiosity – talk to engineers, product managers, IT, operations personnel, anyone that is willing to share what they know with you. Numbers are always based on something, and I believe understanding the ‘something’ helps drive better financial problem solving.
