Lillian Siegh

NAMM’s longest living employee, Lillian Siegh, who served as Executive Secretary, has died at the age of 84. She played a vital role in the inner workings of NAMM for more than 35 years, where she began her career as a secretary, before retiring in 1984. One of her most important and enduring contributions to the NAMM membership was the creation of the NAMM Bound Book collection. She created these archives by collecting member collateral, press releases and official executive letters, considered invaluable resources to this day. Throughout her time at NAMM, Siegh was the Office Manager and, later, the Executive Secretary to William Gard, NAMM Executive Vice President until his retirement in 1981. She then became the assistant to former NAMM President and CEO Larry “Link” Linkin. Siegh planned many high-profile NAMM events and NAMM show parties, including the memorable finale evening banquet at the show during her tenure from 1949 to 1984.
