Peggy Smith, SCRP, GMS


Peggy Smith, Worldwide ERC’s Chief Executive Officer, is an experienced and innovative business leader and recognized global strategist. She came to Worldwide ERC in May 2010 after a stellar career with Microsoft, where she managed a world-class mobility center that averaged over 5,000 annual moves worldwide. While with Microsoft, she expanded the company’s workforce mobility reach from U.S. to global coverage.

In her own words, she “never met a stranger”- indeed, Peggy is viewed by her peers as a friendly and straightforward communicator with a great sense of integrity and humor, a curious and intelligent colleague, a purposeful world citizen and a highly effective business development leader who builds strong relationships with a range of professionals in workforce mobility, talent management, staffing, benefits, payroll, finance, and procurement. When asked to describe herself, she’ll note that she drives for results with an open mind for ideas, and loves a challenge.

Having served on a number of committees and task forces for Worldwide ERC, and more recently, on its Board of Directors and Executive Committee before joining the staff, she is equally familiar with global and U.S. member issues, and service provider and employer concerns, from both an internal and external perspective. She brings a deep understanding of each member segment’s needs and perspectives and an unwavering focus on the advancement of the workforce mobility industry and Worldwide ERC®.

Peggy holds a BA in marketing from Seattle University, Seattle, WA. She and her husband Greg have one daughter, Lauren, one dog, and one cat… because she “only does things in ones!” The family loves to travel, are avid readers and have a deep respect for the game of golf.
