Alexandra Marks, originally from Mansfield, Texas, moved to Lubbock in 2014 to study Restaurant, Hospitality, and Institutional Management at Texas Tech University.
Once Scott and Cindy shared their passion for the Lubbock community with Alex, she became interested in all that Rhodes USA and Neo General Construction had to offer to the area, and gratefully accepted a position as the Administration Manager for both companies. Her years of management have given her experience in budget oversight and financial analysis, and her growing interest in the construction and manufacturing industry has shown her how much of a difference the companies can make in West Texas.
Alex is proud to manage the day-to-day accounting operations at Rhodes USA and Neo General Construction and is dedicated to making sure all projects stay on budget. Her favorite part of working for both companies is seeing ideas come to life on the manufacturing and construction side of projects and enjoys learning about all of the ways the companies are giving back to the community through job opportunities and charity-based work.
