The Ideal family has welcomed some new faces in recent months. Accounts Payable Specialist Jenn Anderson, Business Development Representative Brit Connor, and Accounts Receivable Specialist Tori Davison joined the Ideal team last year and are making positive contributions.
Jenn began working last August as Ideal’s Accounts Payable Specialist. Her primary responsibilities include invoicing and revenue tracking for the business.
Jenn brings a wealth of experience to Ideal having previously worked in Accounts Payable for Pat McGrath Chevyland, a local car dealership. She also spent 12 years working in customer service for US Cellular. Jenn holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, IA.
“I love the people and the quick pace environment at Ideal,” said Jenn. “There’s always something to do.”
When Jenn is away from the office, she manages a busy household which includes three 12-year-old boys and a 9-year-old girl, a new puppy, and her fiancé.
Brit joined Ideal last October as its new Business Development Representative. His primary role is to engage with prospects and determine their dealership needs and overall interest in a dealer management system.
Brit came to Ideal as a recent graduate from Cornell College in Mount Vernon, IA, where he received a degree in Kinesiology. Cornell is one of two colleges in the nation that offers a “one class at a time” program where you are required to complete a class in three weeks. Brit believes this has helped him transition easily into his current role because it teaches you how to manage your time and adapt to different situations since each conversation with a prospect is unique and can go in a variety of different directions.
“I like the fact that I get to be the first to engage with potential customers,” said Brit. “To me this is huge because first impressions mean everything and I believe that this is the most important part about my position.”
When Brit is away from the office he enjoys working on and riding motorcycles and states that he is “a motorcycle enthusiast through and through.”
Tori began working at Ideal last June and serves as Ideal’s Accounts Receivable and Billing specialist. Her primary role is to help answer any customer questions about billing and make sure their accounts are up to date.
“I really enjoy my role at Ideal,” said Tori. “I feel privileged to work with a great team and outstanding customers.”
Outside of the office, Tori enjoys spending as much time as she can outdoors whether it’s hiking, biking, boating, or camping.
