Let’s face it. Visiting a law firm is rarely anyone’s favourite activity.
Contacting Gowing & Co Lawyers Limited however is made a far more pleasant experience when the first voice you hear, or person you see, is Lola.
Lola Sharpe’s main role is as the firm's receptionist and for over a decade she has been the reassuring face that greets visitors to Gowing & Co.
“My job is to make people feel welcome, put them at their ease and connect them quietly and efficiently with the staff member they need to see.”
Lola is also the trust account administrator and she enjoys the satisfaction of a precise daily balance.
Having moved to Whakatane from the Manawatu over 20 years ago, Lola is ‘almost a local’.
