I thank The Allen Lund Company for this opportunity and as manager, I am excited to build upon the success of the Grand Rapids office,” Leonora commented. “I have worked with everyone in the office since their first day and for several in the office, we have been together since the 1990s. My heart to the heavens, being named manager of GR office and working with our people who are the best of the best—I am twice as blessed."
