LI's Employee of the Quarter: David Hempel

July 19, 2013 | By Morton Blackwell

For nearly six years, Dave Hempel has continued the Accounting department’s tradition of efficiency and performance, and not only does he work quickly, reliably, and with sufficient organizational ability to manage multiple tasks simultaneously and with great skill, but he also excels in uncovering new and creative ways to operate more effectively.

Part of effectiveness comes into play as he establishes controls and protocols to make sure all Leadership Institute expenditures are appropriate and appropriately documented, and while this is not always a popular function, as anyone who has received hundreds of reminder e-mails about missing receipts could attest, it is essential to the proper functioning of LI’s finances.

Dave approaches all his work with enthusiasm and a very strong sense of ethics, and is the quintessence of proper management of incoming and outgoing funds.

That is why, after many nominations for employee of the quarter, it is fitting that Dave should finally win this award.
