EL DORADO, AR -- January 21, 2013
Marmik Oil is pleased to announce that Alison Abson will join the company as a Finance Specialist. Abson comes to Marmik with a wealth of experience working in finance and accounting for a number of Arkansas state agencies. At Marmik she will handle critical logistics between the company’s accounting and land offices.
Most recently, Abson managed a staff of seven for the Arkansas Forestry Commission where she served as a Field Audit Supervisor.
