Radeus Labs CEO Succeeds by Not Fearing Failure

ELECTRONICS: Correnti Creates Company Culture that Encourages Growth

As CEO of Radeus Labs, Inc., Juliet Correnti leads an organization with a mission to engineer computing systems and satcom devices that “transform industry disruptions into elegant solutions.” Her success in that mission has led to a string of recent accolades, including recognitions by the National Contract Management Association and the Center for Development of Security Excellence; inclusion on the 2021 list of Successful Women in Business to Watch by The Startup Weekly; and being named by Corporate Vision Magazine CEO Monthly as a CEO of the Year finalist.

Correnti’s most recent accolade is being named a San Diego Business Journal CEO of the Year in the Small Company Category.

“Winning the CEO of the Year was unexpected and yet fantastic validation of what a small team can accomplish and how many lives we can touch in the community,” she said. “It is not always the current belief that focusing on employee culture is the key to a successful business, but we have a firm belief that happy employees make great products and provide great customer support, and this is validation of all of those beliefs. I would like to thank each and every employee, contractor, customer and vendor who have supported us over the last 20 years.”

An Encouraging Leader

Correnti’s leadership at Radeus Labs has created a company culture focused on product quality, customer satisfaction and employee engagement. That engagement is most pronounced through her mentorship of managers at the company and creating an environment that encourages learning and growth by taking risks, telling her team to “never be afraid to fail.”

“By allowing for an environment where failure is OK, she has also created an environment where people aren’t afraid to try something new, creating a culture of invention and ingenuity,” said Kelsey Miller, manager of operationalizing culture at Radeus Labs, who nominated Correnti for the CEO of the Year Award. “All employees are encouraged to look for ways to improve our products and our processes, or just make their job easier. If they try something and it does not work, that is OK. We analyze what did not work and what we can learn from the failure and move on to the next idea.”

In addition to encouraging Radeus Labs team members to take risks, Correnti has also instituted more formal training and learning opportunities, such as one-on-ones, mentorship and tuition reimbursement programs. Radeus Labs also provides opportunities for cross-training and job trajectories that can cross departments that support career advancement opportunities.

Dedicated to Company, Community

Correnti’s dedication to Radeus Labs is evident in the fact that it is the only company she has worked for since graduating from Cal State San Marcos in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. In 2009, Correnti was hired at Radeus Labs as a general manager, a position she held for six years before taking over the chief executive role in 2015.

As CEO, Correnti has led the company through a restructuring of management, clearly defining accounting roles by implementing regular auditing and accounting reporting. She sets clear fiscal objectives and goals for the year and communicates the vision to her team. Recently, she negotiated updated customer contracts to reflect the current cost of parts.

Outside of work, Correnti is actively involved in a group called Back Yard Produce which picks fruit around San Diego and donates it to local food banks and school programs to support the community. She regularly invites the Radeus Labs team to join her and the group at these fruit picks to encourage companywide community involvement and support. Radeus Labs also holds local blood donations and encourages staff to donate blood and plasma.

IN HER OWN WORDS:

“Winning the CEO of the Year was unexpected and yet fantastic validation of what a small team can accomplish and how many lives we can touch in the community. It is not always the current belief that focusing on employee culture is the key to a successful business, but we have a firm belief that happy employees make great products and provide great customer support, and this is validation of all of those beliefs. I would like to thank each and every employee, contractor, customer and vendor who have supported us over the last 20 years.”
