Christine Lewis Executive Assistant to Mike Sipple Jr., President
Comfortable “quarterbacking” the team, enhancing communications and experiences with clients, or managing communications for our organization, Chris is a versatile contributor with extensive experience in relationship building, marketing, and office management.
A stint in consumer product sales for SmithKline Beecham laid the foundation for Chris’s relationship building skills. They were further strengthened working for Miami University in the Office of Alumni and Parent Programs, where Chris worked with alumni chapters, planned major events, and established the university’s first alumni career network.
Relationship skills were crucial for the next chapter of her career when Chris worked first as marketing assistant and then as marketing director for GE Evendale Employees Federal Credit Union. Chris was tasked with increasing credit union membership as well as enhancing the connections with existing members through expanded account relationships.
Chris “retired” from the credit union to raise her three children. However, even while “home with the kids,” Chris built a robust freelance marketing business with nearly a dozen clients, and served on various volunteer boards, including the Junior League of Cincinnati, where she was Vice President of Communications. When the office manager position opened up in the Junior League office, Chris jumped at the chance, knowing it would be a unique opportunity to assist an organization she supported passionately. Chris remains a Junior League member today and is very active in other community organizations as well.
At the top of Chris’s responsibilities is assisting Centennial in enhancing the impact on those we serve and interact with externally and internally. “As Centennial strives to meet the change and growth of the leaders we serve we need impact players like Chris. She has incredible experience, a great demeanor to have a positive impact on those she comes into contact with and has a robust network that aligns well with our firm.” states Mike Sipple Jr, President. She is a connector and has a tremendous communications and marketing mind.”
