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.
