Women’s History Month Spotlight: Angie Corcoran
Celebrating a few of the strong women we’re proud to call leaders
With March marking Women’s History Month, Hibu will be spending the month spotlighting some of the amazing female leaders we’re lucky enough to have in our organization. We’re very excited to share some of their stories with you.
Meet Angie Corcoran, our Vice President of Human Resources.
How long have you been at Hibu? Have you worked in any other departments? Where did you work before Hibu?
I have worked for the company for 21 years. My first position was Associate Manager of Benefits. Prior to Hibu, or McLeod Publishing as it was back in the day, I worked for McGladrey and Pullen as Junior HR Consultant for a short time. Before McGladrey’s, I was living the college life.
What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
It’s tough to pick out just a couple of things because I enjoy my job so much. I would have to say having the opportunity to talk to and interact with such incredible people every day it at the top of the list. I love giving advice to employees who are aspiring to move forward in their careers and subsequently watching them succeed (whether it be an internal employee or a potential recruit). I love helping employees work through challenges in the workplace and watching the plan that we develop together be successfully put into action.
Give one piece of advice to someone aspiring to get to your position.
Surround yourself with positive role models who will push you to be the best you can be. Take it upon yourself to become an expert in your field. Work hard and smart so that you can maintain a healthy work/life balance. Take time to give back to the community in which you live and work. Be nice to people — no one likes a meanie!
Outside of Hibu, what do you like to do?
- Spend time with my husband Mike, my daughter Kyleigh and my son Cooper.
- I attend as many concerts as I can. Kid Rock and Kenny Chesney are my favorites — as a matter of fact, I might be a tad bit obsessed with Kid Rock.
What’s your favorite local business?
Cooper’s Place in Ryan, Iowa.
