It is with mixed feelings the Cox Business Center announces the retirement of Linda Utley from SMG Tulsa. Linda’s career with the City of Tulsa and SMG Tulsa spans 35 years, and began with Linda starting as an Event Planner for the Tulsa Convention Center in 1983. In 2007, she was hired by SMG to be an Event Manager at the Center and during her time she has seen many changes occur at the facility. Linda has always been the “corporate memory” for the building and was the go-to person for questions about the building.
“Linda’s mantra throughout her life has been ‘To live, live, live each day!'” said Jeff Nickler, SMG Tulsa General Manager. Assistant General Manager Kerry Painter noted “You could always expect Linda to have a smile on her face and a hearty welcome to the Cox Business Center for all who entered.”
SMG Tulsa celebrates 35 years of Linda’s employment, wishes her the best in her retirement, and will remember her as a dedicated and friendly employee.
