Private Ocean was honored to have two finalists in the 2019 Admin AwardsDana Armstrong and Marla Mulligan. At last week’s Admin Awards dinner gala, often referred to as the ‘Academy Awards for Admins’, nine winners were announced among an audience of hundreds of attendees at the Westin San Francisco Hotel. We are excited to announce that Marla Mulligan, our Office Manager, was named Office Manager of the Year!

Marla has been with Private Ocean since 2001 and has served in both Client Service and Executive Assistant roles before taking over the reigns and running the office in San Rafael. In addition to assisting with operational processes, she handles a wide variety of requests from everyone on the team and ensures Advisors have everything they need to focus on their clients. Her background is in customer service and training in the financial services industry, and she applies her experience in helping onboard new employees to the firm.

Congratulations to both Marla and Dana! We are lucky to have you on the team.
