Peroli worked at Liniform every summer until she graduated with honors from Ohio University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in business administration, majoring in finance and economics.
After college, Peroli decided to venture out on her own and obtained a job at Nationwide Insurance as a casualty claims liability adjuster. Sher worked for Nationwide for 12 years in both the Cleveland and Canton offices, and obtained multiple promotions.
In 2015, Peroli decided to come back to her roots to work at Liniform as the healthcare development manager to grow its medical sector. In 2016, she took over as the customer service manager and was able to develop strong, lasting relationships with her customers.

“Liniform is my grandfather’s legacy, and I will do everything in my power to make sure Liniform continues to grow and move forward while maintaining the business culture my grandfather was known for,” says Peroli.
“Stay on the high ground, for life at work and away from work is for real. You may pretend to yourself that the company is just a place where you work, but the truth is that company is you.”
