Susan McGalla Just Wants People To Work Hard, Not Get Caught Up In Stereotypes

Susan P. McGalla is a successful executive who hasn’t let anything deter her from her dreams. She is the founder of P3 Executive Consulting in Pittsburgh, a Director of Strategic Planning and Growth for the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, and the former president of American Eagle. She advises other startup companies and large corporations in both the retail and financial industries, is on the boards of charitable organizations like the Magee-Womens Hospital’s Research Institute, and is on the Board of Advisors at her alma mater Mount Union College. She has spoken at universities and gatherings for young women where she has encouraged them to pursue their dreams in the field that they want.

 

The way Susan McGalla encourages these young women is by giving them a different perspective than what they may have heard from their peers or the mainstream media. For her, achieving her career goals was not about “breaking the glass ceiling” that is sometimes referred to in stereotyping women’s roles in the workplace. Instead, McGalla believes in working hard like her parents taught her at a young age, and applying that work ethic at every job she does. She has never expected anything to be handed freely to her because of her gender, and is against any sort of entitlements for women.

 

Susan McGalla grew up in a small town in East Liverpool, OH and was taught from a young age that life would be difficult and she’d have to work for her dreams. She attributes much of her success in life to the principles her parents taught her and holds them up as shiny examples to be revered. She got her bachelor’s from Mount Union College and got a corporate position at Joseph Horne Company in 1986. After 8 years there, she became a Chief Merchandising Officer with American Eagle Outfitters in 1994, the company with which she would ascend to her executive career. McGalla had her obstacles throughout her 15 years there, but her hard work and ideas paid off as she helped the company reshape their brand, and attract a lot more customers through new fashion designs after becoming president of the entire brand. In 2009, McGalla joined the board at HFF, and not long after formed P3 Executive Consulting, LLC.
