Winner, fighter, advocate — Peg Wyant is a pioneer in business, serial founder, philanthropist, writer and the matriarch of one of the most successful families in American squash history.

She is lauded as the first women to wield real decision-making power in big business as Proctor & Gamble’s first female brand manager. She was the company’s first and highest-ranking female executive throughout her ’67-’84 career, with leadership roles in marketing, strategic planning and diversity policies.

After Procter, Peg went on to trail-blaze in venture capital and real estate. In 2014, she launched the Cincinnati Squash Academy in her hometown, adding one more vibrant chapter to the national Squash & Education Alliance while pursuing a passion close to her heart.

Throughout this amazing journey, Peg mothered, fostered and inspired four nationally recognized squash champions including Chris, Yale Varsity team member and recent Obama Foundation Deputy Director; Jack Jr, Head Coach at University of Pennsylvania, Missy, National Champion and top San Francisco real estate agent, and Tim, US National Team member and Executive Director Squash & Education Alliance. Peg and venture-capital executive Jack Wyant, Sr call Cincinnati home and have been married for over 45 years.

A squash player herself, Peg is still looking for that National Championship age category she can dominate. Peg’s Book One Red Shoe, Gatekeeper Press 2021, brings this incredible journey to life and adds the notable achievement of author to her trophy case.

The J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions Women’s Leadership reception and program honoring Peg Wyant for excellence on, off and behind the court will take place Friday January 14, 2022 at 5:00pm at the Yale Club of New York City. Proceeds benefit the PSA Foundation’s Mental Health Program for professional squash players.
