December AMP Employee of the Month!

Congratulations to our December 2023 Employee of the Month, Mike Reines!

This time of year is always busy for the Finance team, but it was particularly busy this year with Becky out on leave for two weeks. Mike was trained on and then covered the vast majority of her accounts payable related duties, including: opening and disbursing the mail, coding payables, entering payables, reconciling credit card statements, entering deposits and other bank transactions, and processing ACH payments. He has continued to assist with these duties after Becky returned to part-time duty.

Becky Petersen, AP and Cash Specialist, shared this about Mike,

“Michael Reines has been a tremendous help to the department and to me while I have been out of the office. He is a hard worker and catches on quickly to processes that he has never done before. He does his work (and mine) with a smile and has been a big inspiration to me! He deserves the Employee of the Month award and more!”

Chief Operating Officer, Karen Bourdage, had this to say about Mike,

“During a period when our very busy AP Specialist was absent from the office, Mike stepped in and managed both his current responsibilities and many of her responsibilities too. He learned her processes ahead of her absence, sitting through hours of training, and then executed the work flawlessly and without complaint. At a time of year when the Finance team is typically their busiest, Mike did not hesitate to cover for his fellow teammate during her time of need. AMP appreciates Mike’s continued positivity toward all of his responsibilities, and particularly during a period of time when we needed more from him.”

In addition to covering accounts payable related duties, Mike was faced with a much tighter deadline for the November month end close. He put in long hours during the evenings and on the weekends in order to make sure the November month end close was completed accurately and on schedule.
