Bagel Wednesday

Campaign Operations Batch Manager, Katherine Lyman, showed off her Outsell team spirit once again today with “Bagel Wednesday”, a weekly tradition providing fresh bagels and cream cheese for her team and anyone able to snag one before they’re gone. While Katy started the tradition, team members Kip Reynolds and Samantha McIntosh also take turns providing the bagels, with occasional guest appearances by Vice President of Operations, Susan Sperl.
