  • Exicute the task list, coordinate the calendar, and lead the way (because getting @#!* done keeps you happy!)

  • Set up specials, private events, and offsite events (to build strong alliances with our partners and customers),

  • Assist with routine work and special projects (it’s exciting to do new things, you never know what cool assignments you might get!).

  • Time off for all holidays, bonuses and tips based on performance and hours worked, and more vacation time than most (as long as we’re getting the work done, we all deserve a break!),
