Name: Briana Preston
Title at GlobalTranz: Account Analyst
Time with GlobalTranz: 6 Months
Briana possesses so many of the qualities I look for in a great Employee; teamwork, positive attitude, initiative, and a work ethic that is impressive. When she is looking into improving current processes to make them more efficient she looks at how it will affect all sides, from the Agents all the way to when payment is applied. In June she took on the Enterprise Team Accounts and has excelled! She has implemented strategies that has helped in account reconciliation and highlight issues that will cause payment delay. Briana has a gift when it comes to building relationships which really makes an impact on our internal and external customers. I know that Briana’s future with GlobalTranz will be extremely successful! –Angie Lannefeld | Account Analyst Manager
