Yay Molly!!! I know this says four years鈥aybe if we only count the FT roles. You started contributing to this place the minute you first stated with us as a high school intern all those years ago. You are an incredible human and we鈥檙e all better off thanks to your efforts!
Happy 4-year anniversary to our rockstar Senior Project Manager Molly Flores! Molly, #TeamLINK thanks you on behalf of your esteemed service to our clients & communities!
Today I had an interview about @LINKstrategic. As I rushed (late) from another meeting, @JamalHoltz jumped in to help prep the crew. I arrived, listened & realized he was ROCKING it鈥o I stepped back & he did the full interview himself as the true executive leader he is!
