“A branch office administrator is not only responsible for the daily operation of the branch, but also must provide top-level client service and marketing support for my activities,” said Eric Hurless, local financial advisor for the firm.

Clark must successfully complete the firm’s in-depth training program within six months to graduate from the trainee designation into the position of branch office administrator. The program consists of online modules that are grouped into study weeks.

Hurless added that he was impressed not only with Cassondra’s office skills and efficiency but also with her knowledge of the community. “I know she will be a terrific asset to our team as we strive to provide our clients unparalleled personal service,” Hurless said.

Clark is originally from Van Wert and is enthusiastic about her return to the area.

Hurless’ branch office is located at 707 Fox Road. He may be reached at 419.238.5581.
