Employee of the Quarter
We are very happy to announce Ms. Lyndsi Johnson as the recipient of our Quarterly Customer Quality Service Award!! Lyndsi has just simply done us a very good job from the moment we hired her going on (6) years ago. Lyndsi was originally hired for a line staff deputy clerk position with our motor vehicle division. But it wasn’t very long before we realized that Lyndsi would be a very good fit for our dealers section. Lyndsi very quickly established a good grasp on title and registration work and her efficiency and her accuracy has always been exemplary!! Lyndsi’s genuine down to earth customer service approach with the public is one of her greatest virtues. She is a natural with the public and her receiving this recognition only reaffirms that. And not lastly, is Lyndsi’s absenteeism which is literally non-existent as she takes a great deal of pride with being at work. We are very fortunate to have Lyndsi and an entire great staff that also take pride in their work and servicing the public in a very courteous and professional manner.
