Lindsay chairs the Employee Communication Committee, a group that represents a cross-section of our employee body and is tasked with helping to disseminate information throughout the company.

Lindsay works tirelessly and with great ambition to ensure that she is performing her job with the utmost care and discretion. Cape Associates would not be the company it is without her.
