Jennifer C. Peterson, Chief Executive, Easton - Steiner & Associates
Jen joined Steiner + Associates in 2015 and oversees the entire Easton property in the Chief Executive role. She is responsible for creating an environment that enhances the customer experience, drives tenant sales and positions Easton for continued growth. She works to create an emotional connection between Easton and its guests, delivering compelling, engaging and memorable experiences. In 2019, Easton was named the No. 1 Retail Center Experience in America, as well as a Columbus Foundation “#1“ Designee. With the COVID-19 pandemic and the post-quarantine, safe restart of the shopping destination, her work became even more challenging. Jen and her team worked around the clock to ensure that all guests could feel safe returning to Easton, as well, that they would also have a positive, uplifting experience. As a result of these efforts, Easton was tapped as a Top10 COMEBACK Center by Chain Store Age magazine this past year. In 2021, the Center was once again tapped as the No. 1, a major coup after receiving the award two years prior.
