Michelle Munroe

Let’s put a face to the voice…

For two decades callers connecting to our voicemail service have been greeted by the dulcet tones of Michelle Munroe, affectionately referred to as “the voice of WTF Group.”

Michelle joined the company as receptionist in 1996 before graduating to Lease Administrator after 2 years. Her longevity in this role has allowed Michelle the opportunity to establish strong bonds with our tenants, many of whom she has watched grow from infancy in to thriving, successful businesses; WTF Group would not be the same without her.

Happy 20 year anniversary Michelle!
