Baltimore native Stephanie Hill, a Vice President at Lockheed Martin and Chair of the Greater Baltimore Committee Board of Directors, has been named to the board of the S&P Global financial information and analytics firm.
Hill joined Lockheed in 1987 as a software engineer and now acts as general manager of its cyber, ships & advanced technologies line of business. She became the first African American woman to lead the Greater Baltimore Committee in November 2015.
S&P Global, previously McGraw Hill Financial, provides Standard & Poor’s rating services, among other products. The firm employed more than 20,000 people globally at the end of 2015.
With her nomination, S&P Global has five women on the 13-person board of directors, appointments that the company said “underscore the company’s commitment to inviting diverse backgrounds, perspectives, skills and experience” into the board room.
Former Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke, a member of the GBC Board of Directors, also sits on the S&P Global board.
