Baltimore native Stephanie Hill, a vice president at Lockheed Martin and chair of the Greater Baltimore Committee, 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 also sits on the board.
