Tanny is the President and CEO at the Crane Group, which got its start as Crane Plastics in 1947 by her grandfather. Tanny joined the company in 1987, and since then she’s worked along side an amazing team to build a network of local, regional, and global firms in an ecosystem centered around helping their business leaders create and execute on their visions.
In addition, Tanny is extremely passionate about giving back to the community. She’s involved with quite a few non-profit boards, and she sits on the board of Huntington Bancshares and Ohio Health. She also helped found the Reeb Avenue Center with her partner in crime, Jane Abel, and many others across the city. Reeb Avenue Center is dedicated to helping lift the south side neighbors of Columbus out of poverty. They operate out of a 110-year old elementary school building, where they’ve brought together 14 non-profit partners who are working on initiatives ranging from job skills and placement to education.
