Vickie Coughenour, 62, has been in the same job for just over 42 years. She’s outlasted the technology she was selling for most of those years with Hecht & Jimenez. Her new bosses with Copy Systems, Inc. recently told her they’d like at least another 10 years out of her.
“April 21, 1979, I started as a secretary,” Coughenour said. “We had one service tech, the owner Ruven (Jimenez) and myself. The three of us ran the business a long time.”
