As we have found here at Lynx Incorporated, finding great talent sounds easier than it looks. More so than making sure someone is qualified educationally and in experience, it’s increasingly challenging to find someone with the work ethic, dedication, and charisma to make a significant long-term contribution to an organization. Luckily, when we found Mackenze McClain, she was everything that we were looking for and more! A scholar, an athlete, social, personable, humble, and eager to get her foot in the door.
Born & raised in Martinsville, IN, Mackenze grew up in a big family complete with her mom, dad, step-dad, and 2 brothers. Spending time both on a diary farm and in Indianapolis, Mackenze learned the value of hard work and perseverance from a young age. An active child, she was involved in 4H, volleyball, basketball, track, AND cheerleading – just to name a few! With a baseball coach for a father and basketball coach for a step-father, Mackenze was born to compete.
After deciding to attend Ball State University, Mackenze made the most of her 4 years by rushing Alpha Chi Omega and becoming extremely active in the business school as a marketing major. Meeting some of her best friends and significant other at school, she graduated in May of 2017 with distinguished marks and hopes of one day returning to be a Professor (all 3 of her parents are teachers)!
Upon submitting her application to Lynx Incorporated online, Mackenze came in interviewing for an Account Management position. Making such a positive impression on the hiring team, she was offered a position as a Human Resources Manager – a position she eagerly accepted! Now aiding in resume screening, talent acquisition, and administration, Mackenze uses her competitive, people-oriented personality to drive our company’s growth from the front office!
When she’s not working hard, you can find Mackenze going to concerts with her dad (a tradition they’ve followed for over a decade), watching live sporting events (especially baseball), or binging Arrow & Grey’s Anatomy! A go-getter, Mackenze’s intentions are to soak up all the knowledge Lynx Incorporated has to give and grow with the company over the next years through forging strong bonds with her coworkers.
Mackenze, we wanted to write this blog as a way of officially welcoming you to the team and to the family. It is a pleasure to work with someone of your caliber, and we are thrilled to see what the future holds for us as partners.
