It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce the promotion of Mallory Dunn from Marketing Coordinator to Marketing Specialist and Michele Aiken from Media Specialist to Senior Marketing Coordinator.
Michele has been with Branch going on 13 years and has proven herself to be an exemplary employee, a talented photographer and an enthusiastic early adopter of new (and confounding) computer programs. While Mallory in 4 short years has risen to all occasions with grace and a ready smile, knows how to throw a mean party and is the personification of our core values. Please join me in congratulating them both as they continue to Build Legacies for a Thriving Future.
Linda Voss, Director of Marketing & Communications
