Office Manager: Office Manager, Horn Aylward & Bandy
Jenna Grey is “indispensible to the day-to-day operation of Horn Aylward & Bandy,” wrote her nominator, “and has been since the firm’s inception on April 1, 1999.”
Grey was Bob Horn’s secretary for 15 years before she worked as legal secretary to Horn and Tim Aylward for a total of 23 years. She has managed the office since it was founded, as well as its IT, bookkeeping, payroll and human resources issues.
She serves as a mentor to staff as well as an after-hours winter weather network, notifying the support staff of office closure notifications when it’s not safe to drive.
Desperate to keep her, the firm convinced Jenna to postpone her retirement.
“She is so irreplaceable that we prevailed upon Jenna to postpone her retirement by a couple of years (and we have conspired to ‘drag our feet replacing her, in the hope she will stay on indefinitely),” her nominator wrote.
