Meet Sharon Gregory – the creator and owner of Sigmas Event Center.
Sharon has enjoyed many work experiences including bartending/management, gymnastics coaching, child-care, math tutoring, house cleaning and a variety of other exciting endeavors. However, her formal career began when she received her master’s degree in secondary mathematics education and began teaching high-school math. But that path changed quickly as she was offered a role at a corporation which ultimately resulted in her becoming a Six Sigma Master Black Belt. It was during that time when Sharon found her passion as a process improvement leader and switched gears to follow an entrepreneurial journey.
She started her first business, Hexagon Solutions and Beyond, Inc. (HexSAB) in 2001. HexSAB provides process excellence training and consulting services which often require that she find venues to conduct her training workshops. After several years of having many disappointing experiences at venues around the globe and seeing a gap in the Pittsburgh area for upscale corporate training space, she committed to creating a local event center. Sharon admits having no formal background in event or venue management however she was not going to let that stop her from pursuing a solution for the challenges she was facing for HexSAB.
