Margaret (Peg) Stessman
CEO and Owner
Peg began her career in healthcare as a nurse in 1985 and transitioned into senior management in the 1990s. In 1996, she became the quality assurance administrator for the State of Nebraska, overseeing Nebraska’s Medicaid Managed Care Program.
In 1999, she served as director of operations and eventually became president and CEO of a nationally recognized government contracting company that focuses on program integrity and payment accuracy within the Medicare and Medicaid programs. During her five years there, she grew the company from a small division of two employees to a wholly owned subsidiary of more than 150 employees with four offices throughout the United States and $24 million in revenues.
In 2005, she established Strategic as a partner in the fight against fraud, waste, and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. She employed a handful of people when she launched the company out of her home, and in just 12 years grew her small business into a certified large enterprise. Under Peg’s leadership, Strategic has received recognition and awards from numerous organizations, including the Inc. 5000, Inc. Impact 50 award, Washington Technology Fast 50 award, Smart CEO Gov Star award, and ESGR Patriot Award.
Peg received a BS degree in nursing and an MBA from the University of Iowa, and maintains an active license as a registered nurse in the state of Nebraska to this day. She is a member of the American Nurses Association, Nebraska Nurses Association, Women Impacting Public Policy, and National Association of Women Business Owners.
