Smart Women Make Great Corporate Hires!

By Rich Bond

Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day got me thinking about some of the best and brightest women I’ve placed since becoming a financial recruiter.

My most successful female placement was probably Margaret McCleod. I recruited Margaret for the large appliance company Whirlpool. Her task was to set up a derivatives book to swap long-term debt for short-term debt, which netted millions of dollars of interest income for her company. But Margaret wasn’t just a successful trader, she was also a talented corporate finance person.

In 2008, she became treasurer of Whirlpool.

Margaret retired in 2015, but she was part of the beginning of a large number woman who became the treasurers of a major public company.
