EcoShredding owner and founder, Peg Hussing, was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and has called Georgia home since the mid-1970s.
In 2000, Peg started a pre-employment screening company, which she still owns and operates today. It was through a need to safely and securely destroy sensitive pre-employment information that she discovered the mobile document destruction industry, and she founded EcoShredding in 2008.
Peg believes in the power of relationships and is an advocate of supporting one’s community and the local businesses that comprise it. As such, she is a volunteer for the Alpharetta Farmer’s Market, and serves as a member of the Alpharetta Business Association, the Alpharetta Chamber of Commerce, the Sandy Springs-Perimeter Chamber of Commerce, BNI, and Women’s Success Network.
Her professional associations also include the Mobile Shredding Association (MSA), and the International Secure Information Governance & Management Association® (i-SIGMA®). It is through her association with these organizations, as well as through her own research, that she stays connected with rules and regulations required for destruction of sensitive information, giving her the information for her company website’s monthly blog and EcoShredding’s e-newsletter, as well as for educational presentations to professional organizations including BNI and Women’s Success Network.
God and family are extremely important to her, as the mother of two grown children and grandmother to three grandchildren. In her spare time, Peg enjoys walking her dogs, reading, biking, hiking, and, as a member of the American Sailing Association, she enjoys anything to do with lakes, rivers, or the ocean.
