Gas South is thrilled to announce that Meredith Hodges, our vice president of external affairs and human resources, was honored by the Georgia Diversity Council as one of the most powerful and influential women in Georgia. Meredith received the prestigious award on Sept. 27 at the 4th Annual Georgia Leadership Conference.
The awards are intended for businesswomen who have made a difference through their achievements and exemplify the ability to excel in their fields, and Meredith certainly fits the bill. Her 20 years of experience in the utility industry make her a vital resource at Gas South and a true leader.
At Gas South, Meredith is really a Jill of all trades – she oversees human resources, legislative and regulatory affairs, public relations, and community involvement. I commonly and affectionately call Meredith our “Chief People Officer”, because she makes Gas South a great place to work and a great company to do business with. She has spearheaded many community service initiatives over the years, and stays involved in the community through her volunteer efforts with local organizations such as the Woodruff Arts Center, Society of St. Vincent de Paul, United Way, Junior Achievement, and others.
We’re extremely proud, go Meredith!
