Here at Harman we are privileged to have such a great team of people working for our clients. Once a month we will be highlighting one of our team members so that you can get to know them a little bit better.
This month the spotlight falls on Nancy Bowers – Director of Finance at Harman Construction. Prior to joining Harman in 1997, Nancy earned her accounting degree—cum laude—from Eastern Mennonite University. She also graduated from the U.S. Army Military Police Academy and from the Defense Language Institute with a focus on German.
Here are a couple questions we asked Nancy about her experience at Harman and why she believes Harman is a great place to work and a great company to do business with:
What is your role at Harman Construction and how does it relate to its employees and clients?
I have been with Harman for 18 years. I am in charge of the accounting department, its staff and the overall ebb and flow of the department. As an accounting staff we work diligently to make sure our reporting is clear and sound so that the Harman team, out on the field and those working with our clients, can do their jobs well.
What is the most favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy the reporting aspect of my job. I love the challenge of finding the most efficient way to accomplish a task and then putting it to work for Harman. For example, We just implemented an accounts payable paperless routing system in the accounting office. It is more efficient for the staff and provides a quicker turnaround of information to the Harman team.
What have you come to appreciate/value about working on the team at Harman?
I really appreciate and value the people at Harman. I also appreciate that the owners of Harman stand firm in their Christian values which in turn create a great culture in which to work. We have an excellent team that is talented and professional, not only in their roles at Harman, but out in the community as well.
What other life experience have you had that helps you in your job today?
My time in the military really helped me learn the importance of team work and that there are a lot of different ways to accomplish a task. The time I spent traveling internationally with the military also allowed me to work with a variety of different cultures and people, which I believe helps me in my work today.
Outside of Harman, what other things do you enjoy in your down-time.
I love spending time with my family and with my grandchildren. Being married to a Pastor Husband, we are both busy in the life of our church. I also like to play the piano occasionally and work in my flower garden.
