Please join the GlobalTranz family in congratulating Shawnah Kucken as the April 2015 Employee of the Month.
Position: Senior/Lead Account Analyst
Time with GlobalTranz: 3 years, 4 months
Shawnah has an Associates degree in Applied Sciences and is currently working on her bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Prior to GlobalTranz, Shawnah was the day supervisor at Saddle Ranch Chop House with aspirations of becoming a nurse. “I was originally going to school for nursing when I started here, but decided to change my major to business as I fell in love with what I do here!”
As Senior/Lead Account Analyst, Shawnah is responsible for building and maintaining customer relationships while reconciling and collecting balances on assigned accounts. “I also work as an extension of my manager Angie; meaning that I help implement any changes within our department as well as help with anything else asked of me,” she stated.
When asked how she maintains her success, Shawnah said, “I try to always keep a positive attitude- it is crucial for working in collections and it rubs off on others!” And when questioned about her work environment, she said, “I love that I’m basically working with my second family. Everyone works so hard and is very supportive.”
Shawnah has had great accomplishments during her tenure at GlobalTranz and points out one specifically saying, “I originally worked in the Credit Department but changed to full time collections and took on our Direct Sales team- about a year later I accepted the lead of senior collections analyst position.”
Shawnah hopes to continue to grow within GlobalTranz and her department with, “whatever that may entail.”
Originally from Wisconsin, Shawnah enjoys spending time with her family and being outdoors – hiking, walking and lounging by the pool.
“I am so happy I found a job that I love going to everyday. I’m very excited to be part of such a great team and company!”
“Shawnah is a tremendous asset to our department. She is always looking for best practices to make her job more efficient and never hesitates to lend a helping hand to any of her co-workers. Her dedication and customer focus are huge strengths to the GlobalTranz finance department.”
