Mary is the cheery voice that answers the phone and the smile that greets you when you walk in the office. But Mary is a lot more than a smiling face – if you’ve booked an event at the LEX, been booked to appear at the LEX, put a vehicle in storage, taken a vehicle out of storage, booked a meeting room, attended a committee meeting, or bought tickets for the LEX, you have probably talked to Mary. If Mary can’t answer your question, it’s likely because an answer doesn’t exist.
Connie is in charge of anything related to our finances: whether the money is flowing in or flowing out, the paperwork crosses Connie’s desk and magically ends up correctly filed.
