Martha Place | Executive administrator

MBA in Economics | St. Ambrose University

BS in Business Administration & Marketing | Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville

We are pleased to welcome Martha Place as the newest addition to our Vessel team!  As our beloved Mary slips slowly into retirement, Martha will step in as Executive Administrator and take on the duties that keep this place running.

Martha joins us from Precision Builders and Associates, a commercial carpentry contractor in east-central IL; prior to that she spent six years at Edward Jones, and 20 years in the tourism industry.

Growing up, Martha’s father worked as a civil engineer and moved the family around the Midwest. Inheriting the gypsy spirit from her dad, she has moved 23 times – her move back to St. Louis will be her 24th. Her travels took her everywhere from a year in Sedona, AZ, to 7 months in Elkhart, IN (which seemed like 10,000 years…apologies to anyone from Indiana).

When she’s not in the office, Martha enjoys hiking, spending time with friends, reading and watching films. She, of course, still enjoys traveling and is heading to Switzerland this summer to hike the Grindelwald area around the North Face of the Eiger.

We look forward to getting to know you even more, Martha!
