Ann Lamber, executive assistant to the president and CEO at Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives, wrapped up a distinguished career today with nearly 33 years of service to Ohio co-ops.

Lamber was first hired as a secretary to Buckeye Power’s engineering department in 1983. In 1993, she was promoted to administrative assistant to the vice president of engineering.

In 2002, Lamber began her current role as executive assistant. In that capacity, she has served under presidents Richard Byrne, Tony Ahern and Pat O’Loughlin, and she additionally served as secretary to the boards of trustees for Ohio Rural Electric Cooperatives and Buckeye Power.

“For more than three decades, Ann has served the Ohio cooperative program with a love for the job and the people she has worked with,” said Pat O’Loughlin, president and CEO of Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives. “Many of us, especially myself, owe her a debt of gratitude for keeping things running smoothly around the office and in the boardroom while having fun doing it. We all wish her well in her retirement.”

Lamber was recognized for her service at a farewell retirement lunch. In her retirement, Lamber plans to spend time traveling with family, playing cards and reading.
