SVP/GM, Cox Southeast Region

Vines continues to lead Cox’s second-largest region, a combined Louisiana, Florida and Georgia system, which employs approximately 2,500 employees. The region spans thousands of miles, two time zones and is comprised of six markets. “Our diverse employee base reflects the communities we represent,” Vines says. This year, Louisiana State University’s Women’s Center gave Vines its Esprit de Femme Award, for making contributions to advancement for women and helping them elevate their status in the community.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
It’s getting to know the 2,500 extraordinary men and women who make Cox’s Southeast region a great place to work. Our diverse employee base reflects the communities we represent. At the end of the business day, I like to take a walk around the call center and just visit with folks. It helps keep me grounded and gives me a pulse on what’s going on with the business.
 
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
I am newly married and now a “mom” to six. So achieving work-life balance and spending enough time nurturing and blending this new family is extremely important to me (I have three young daughters and my husband has two older sons and a teenage daughter). Lately, I have been enjoying cooking for the family at night. When I am not traveling, one thing we do at the end of the day as a family is reflect on what went well and what we could have done better.
 
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?
I wouldn’t mind being in charge of the state’s foster care system for a month. As a former foster child myself and an adoptive mother of three biological sisters, I believe I could provide some valuable first-hand perspective. I also enjoy motivational speaking and advocating on behalf of women and children; still among the most underserved populations in the state and the nation.
