As chief operating officer for Bithenergy, Inc., Corretta Bennett oversees the energy engineering company’s strategic growth. With over 18 years of experience in strategic planning, business development, finance, project management and engineering, Bennett has proven to be an effective leader for Bithenergy since joining the company in 2016.

She is credited with creating 125 new positions in the construction industry in Baltimore and is a sought-after adviser for numerous women engineering development programs.
