An integral part of the Mercury Racing team for 16 years, Lisa Scola worked with company leaders Fred Kiekhaefer and Erik Christiansen— and currently works with general manager Stuart Halley. That’s not something most folks at the Fond du Lac, Wis., company can say, and it speaks volumes about her dedication, passion and consistency. The 55-year-old Scola is the consummate professional. Like so many of her colleagues, she grew up in Wisconsin boating, fishing and snowmobiling. Unlike most, and likely all, of her co-workers, she has a hole-in-one to her credit.

HOW DID YOU COME TO YOUR POSITION AT MERCURY RACING?
I’ve been at Mercury for 22 years. I started out in Plant Engineering doing AutoCad design and layout work. After I finished my degree, I moved into the credit department for a short time, where I learned about the background business. About a year or so later, I started at Mercury Racing as an account rep. It’s been about 16 years now and I’m still enjoying it and being challenged every day, though some days more than others.
DESCRIBE YOUR ROLE AT THE COMPANY.
At Racing we wear a lot of different hats. My job has evolved over the years, but if I were to sum it up, I try to keep all of our customers happy.
