Client Account Administrator
Ruth is the newest member of the Lexo team, and we’re not sure how we managed without her.
Ruth finds her days are full and varied, although Lexo prides itself as being a low paper consumption and efficient office, there is always administration to be done, especially in a regulated firm. So Ruth ensures all post and files are scanned, she politely chases surgeries for medical reports to arrange life policies, and follows up with clients to give them a gentle reminder when they might need it.
Lexo set a target to be carbon neutral in 2020, and Ruth has been tasked to champion this throughout the office.
