Kathy Eckermann, who has been with the firm for 13 ½ years, now serves as my Executive Assistant. She replaced Libby Wilbanks, who had served in that capacity for 25 years, in January 2011. Kathy holds a very important position. It takes a very special person to handle the many demands that go along with the job. Kathy assists me with a number of things including answering the phone, returning phone calls, checking the firm trial schedule for accuracy, making travel arrangements, scheduling board meetings, formatting articles for the Report, firm sponsorships and coordinating charities.
But I believe her most important function is dealing with all of the folks who contact my office. Kathy handles all sorts of people who contact my office and she does it very well. We get calls and contacts from people, mostly lawyers, from all across the country. It takes a person with excellent people skills to handle the demands on this position. I am most fortunate to have had two persons, Libby and Kathy, with these skills. I really believe each has enjoyed the part of their work that involved dealing with people.
Kathy has been married to Eddie Eckermann for 33 years. Eddie, a retired school teacher, currently drives buses around the country for Capital Trailways. Kathy and Eddie have a son and a daughter. Aaron, who lives in Nashville and works for Gibson Guitar, will be getting married in August. Leah lives in Montgomery and works for M.A.R.C.
Kathy attended Huntingdon College and received a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education, graduating cum laude. She says she loves playing the piano and composing music, reading, walking for exercise, hiking when on vacation and spending time with her family. Kathy serves as the orchestra pianist at her church, Eastmont Baptist. Kathy does a tremendous job and I am blessed to have her working with me.
