Every year, our Finance department honors members of other departments who have "advanced the goals of Finance". The 2017 honorees are:


1. Sam Arrow, Facilities

Sam expertly prepares all of the Facilities Department payment requests; paying close attention to department allocations.  And has become the "go to" person for questions regarding work orders.


2. Hayden Murray, Membership

Hayden has taken the lead in administering our Raiser's Edge software, Convio and Blackbaud Merchant accounts and coming up with various ways for Accounting/Finance and Membership/Development to work more efficiently together. In addition, she has become the liasion between Membership/Development and Accounting/Finance.


3. Michela Gentile, Projects

Has become "the go to person" for One Tam fundraisers; such as the Science Summit and Science Symposiums and being the liasion between Development, Projects Dept and Accounting/Finance.


4. Ame Rose Cruz, Development

Ame does an amazing job with administering the many payments to vendors for our events; as well as working with Development on the payment technologies for the TFD and Nighthowl party.


5. Patrick McAllister, Visitor Services

Each year, Patrick builds the Alcatraz Tour revenue budget from the bottom-up, calculating visitation based on the ferry schedule, and we calculate it at 30,000 feet up, using a macro approach that estimates total visitation based on historical trends.  Patrick did a much better job than Finance for FY2018, by coming up with a number significantly bigger than mine.  I guess there's a first time for everything!


6. Dan Wong & Veda Banerjee, Marketing & Communications

Not only did these two identify an error in their FY2017 budget while working on their FY2018 budget, these two dug in their heels and confidently defended their assertion, proving us wrong.  


7. Nathan Bowers, Executive Office

Nathan has demonstrated extraordinary skills and tenacity during his first tour  managing the Executive Office  Budget.  It's never easy to discuss a budget item with the Boss.
