Nancy Goedecke Named UAB Outstanding Woman In The Community

The University of Alabama-Birmingham has named Mayer Electric Supply Company CEO Nancy Goedecke the “Outstanding Woman in the Community” for 2015.

Nancy Goedecke, CEO of Mayer Electric Supply Company, has been involved with volunteer service and philanthropy for more than 20 years. She has worked with more than 25 nonprofit and civic groups, many of which are solely devoted to helping women in the community.

“Through her leadership, she encourages young women to finish their education, develop their potential and give back to the community,” said Shirley Salloway Kahn, Ph.D., senior vice president for Development, Alumni and External Relations. “Nancy is aware of the privilege to represent so many women in Alabama, and she continues to make meaningful contributions to their businesses, their families and their community every day.”

Goedecke uses her role as a community leader to work on behalf of women for social and economic change in Alabama. At UAB, she supports the Collat School of Business and contributed to the building of the Women and Infants Center. She has also been involved with the local YWCA, Girls Scouts of North-Central Alabama and Pathways of Birmingham, among other nonprofit organizations.

“Despite the many demands of her daily responsibilities as CEO of Mayer Electric, Nancy routinely invests an inordinate amount of time in service to our Birmingham community, as well as in the other 13 states and communities where the company is growing,” said Eric Jack, Ph.D, dean of the School of Business. “In fact, under her leadership, an important part of Mayer Electric’s strategy is its key role in seeking to better the communities where employees live and work.”
