Susan McGalla is most widely known for her involvement with the National Football League team Pittsburgh Steelers as the team’s – legally known as The Pittsburgh Steelers, LLC – Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development. Ms. McGalla also currently works for P3 Executive Consulting, a business consultancy firm that primarily offers insight into the world of fashion. McGalla founded P3 Executive Consulting by herself.
Here’s how Ms. Sussan McGalla rose to such a high, lofty level of success in business
Back in the late 1960s and throughout all of the 1970s, Susan McGalla lived as the only female – outside of her mother, of course – in her family, sharing a household with a football coach of a father and two boys that loved physical contact as much as their father’s players.
McGalla today says that growing up in such a tough environment as a child and adolescent helped her become successful in virtually all of her endeavors. Once, in an interview with PR Newswire, Susan McGalla was quoted as saying, “I was brought up by parents who encouraged me … to present my … ideas with confidence regardless of the audience.”
Being able to stand strong over 18-plus years to two annoying, hands-on boys and a physical father who was oftentimes just as annoying as his younger male counterparts helped McGalla stand strong to employers, audiences, and others who might not agree with what McGalla says or stands for.
Here’s a little bit about her working life
After graduating college, Ms. McGalla began working in both marketing and management at Joseph Horne Company, a business based in her home state of Ohio.
Following her eight-year stint with the company – it lastest from 1986 to 1994 – she found employment at American Eagle, where she’d eventually become the CMO.
