Woods Bros Realty is excited to announce their newest agent, Penny McCord, who is joining their Wilderness Hills Office. Penny grew up in the Clinton and Harley neighborhoods and went to high school at Lincoln Northeast. She received her BA from UNL and then moved to Omaha where she started her family and earned an MA and MBA from UNO. After living in Omaha for 40 years, Penny has returned to Lincoln and she has spent the last year completing renovations of her home in the Near South Neighborhood.
During her career and time in Omaha, she managed the Douglas County Juvenile Diversion program and worked for a computer manufacturer and distributor providing assistance in marketing and management of company owned and franchised Learning Centers. She started and managed a leasing program to assist retail outlets with the sale of computers and later lead the company in obtaining ISO 9001 certification. Penny served as a Vice President on the management committee, lead the company’s quality control and process improvement efforts, and development of a Business Continuity Program. When the company was acquired by COMPAQ, she managed the transition and transfer of COMPAQ’s personal computer manufacturing to her company’s four warehouse locations. When HP acquired COMPAQ, Penny took a buyout and spent the next 10 years working as an independent consultant offering expertise in Business Continuity Planning, Sarbanes Oxley compliance, process improvement, and project management.
Penny was active in grant writing and volunteering to support community programs offered by the Omaha Assistance League and spent leisure time taking ballroom dancing lessons, making jewelry, and playing cards with friends. She has also been studying to become a mediator for Lincoln’s Mediation Center but she has always liked real estate and is looking forward to helping customers find homes that will help to enrich their lives.
