Duke Energy vice president became an engineer because she loved math but stayed with it to lead others
On Cicely Hart’s first day as an engineer at Duke Energy, she thought past the technical and wondered, “How can I be a leader?”
Twenty years later, Hart is vice president of region support for Duke Energy’s Midwestern service areas, including parts of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, and she’s committed to sharing what she’s learned about leadership with others.
