MoreSteam Welcomes New President
Peg Pennington brings 20+ years experience in developing organizational capability
July 30, 2018 -
Columbus, OH - Bill Hathaway, Chief Executive Officer, recently announced the appointment of Peg Pennington to assume the role of MoreSteam’s President, effective immediately. Peg will lead all company operations and will apply her considerable talents toward finding new and innovative ways to help customers resolve evolving challenges.
"We have counted Peg as a member of the MoreSteam extended family for many years," said Hathaway. "She brings a strategic focus on 'next practices', rather than accepting the current 'best practices'. That’s what our customers expect from us -- enterprise process improvement tools and technology to get to the next level."
For the past decade, Pennington has served as the Executive Director of the Center for Operational Excellence at Ohio State's Fisher College of Business. In that role, she developed a deep familiarity with the global process improvement community and MoreSteam. She is recognized for her advocacy of organizational cultures that embed critical thinking and problem solving into their core competencies.
Pennington helped architect Fisher’s unique Master of Business Operational Excellence ("MBOE") program, and will continue in her role as an adjunct instructor of the MBOE lean leadership and Six Sigma curriculum. As part of her work with the Center for Operational Excellence, she was instrumental in establishing rigorous standards for Lean Six Sigma certification aligned with industry expectations. She also worked tirelessly to develop an OpX community of learning offering a variety of educational, benchmarking, and networking events.
Before joining Ohio State, Pennington served in a managerial role at Emerson Network Power. Her academic credentials include a bachelor’s degree in finance from Michigan State University and an MBA from the University of Dayton.
"I am thrilled to join Bill’s executive team and build upon the success of what his organization has achieved over the past 18 years," stated Pennington. "I hear everybody talking about trending topics such as digital disruption, machine learning, and AI, but few have developed concrete strategies to address those trends. MoreSteam’s portfolio offers a full suite of products to drive the continued growth and success of organizations. I’m looking forward to working with our MoreSteam clients to support their ongoing transformation."
