Advancing Life & Work

HPE is a Family Affair

Back when I started at HP back in 1983, there were many social events such as Bring Your Kid to Work Day, Company Picnics and Holiday Parties for each season. I never would have imagined how the HP Culture impacted my son and my family while participating in these events. Due to this impact, my son aspired to work alongside me at HPE. Today, my two sons and my Daughter-in-Law are all proud to be HPE employees.

I’m Teronzo Helm, Sr. and I’ve been with the company for 35 years. Throughout my years as an engineer and leader, I’ve adapted to the many business changes within in HP/HPE with all of mergers, acquisitions and growth of the company to the separations of companies. Ultimately, my journey has been a fulfilling one and to see my sons and family following in my footsteps is an indescribably, rewarding experience.

In 2012, Teronzo Helm, Jr. (TJ) applied for position at HP, and he was hired as a Public Sector Agent. A young lady, by the name of Ashley Rogers, was hired on in 2012 as a Critical Event Manager in the same department. Their friendship quickly materialized into something much more lovely and in 2016 my son married his best friend, Ashley Helm. Both of them were top-performers in their respective positions and were promoted to several roles throughout their tenure within HPE. Ashley is now a people manager for the Custom Solution Managers and TJ is a Technical Account Manager (TAM) managing high-visibility, Value-Portfolio customer accounts.  Along with this great family connection, my youngest son a graduate of the Kennesaw State University (KSU) was hired as an intern at HPE in the Control Tower Agent position.  In 2018, he was converted to a full time position after completing his Bachelors of Business Administration degree in Information Security and Assurance.

In the HPE Alpharetta location, there are 4 employees with the last name Helm who are related in various positions which is aligned to Alpharetta location’s family feel and mood with the people, facilities, and site activities that make HPE a great place to work. 



I believe the HPE values, which are congregate with my family values, throughout the years have permeated within the Helm family creating generations of HPE employees.
