Anita Tatum - Marketing Director
Yes, I am the Anita on the radio for Lex Brodie's Tire. I love hearing from our customers about how our radio spots make them laugh and smile. Josh and I really enjoy doing the spots and I don't mind being the Fall Guy (or Girl in this matter) to get our message across. As long as you like hearing them, we'll keep making new ones for your listening pleasure. About me.... I was born and raised on the Big Island in Hilo. From an early age I could never sit still and my parents allowed me to use my energy to be creative in the arts, play sports and explore. They were also very involved in church & community clubs and organizations and would have us kids tag along to "help". Little did I know that this would help me to develop a knack for planning and executing events, budgeting, working with people and caring for our community.
I'm proud to be a part of Lex Brodie's Tire and smile knowing that our customers are being well taken care of by our employees. All of us here truly care about the safety of our customers and want to do our part to make the Big Island the Best place to live. It is for me and I wouln't have it any other way. Aloha.... A =0)
