January 30, 2018

Marion, OH -- The Ohio State University’s Alber Enterprise Center is pleased to announce the promotion of Kori Montgomery to the new position of project coordinator. She previously served as the full-time office associate for the Center.

In her new position, Montgomery holds official project coordination responsibility, including client proposal preparation, overseeing the client project process and procedures with the team, and providing support to the Center’s solution providers. She is responsible for managing the Center’s online course catalog,, and providing support to online students. The new role also includes fiscal support to clients and vendors, as well as analyzing and reporting the Center’s budget.

“I’m proud of this accomplishment, mostly since I completed my B.A. (Psychology, The Ohio State University) in 2016,” stated Montgomery, adding: “The Center hired a full-time office assistant in July as part of our long term staffing plan. This allowed me to take on more of the financial analyst duties, including revamping our fiscal reporting process.” In addition, the hiring of Becky Passet as office assistant helped to make it possible for Montgomery to enhance her work in the areas of projects and solution provider support.

The catalyst for delivering curriculum as part of her new project coordinator role was partly Montgomery’s completion of the Gallup-Certified CliftonStrengths® Coach training program. Currently, she is learning how to facilitate strengths workshops and is working to gain experience as a strengths coach.

In addition to the above, Montgomery has certifications in Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and the Denison Culture Assessment.
