    – December 22, 2017

    Tami Walsh gave props to Beth Nugent

    Beth has been the backbone of my existence on a daily basis. She is always ready to jump in and help, find an answer or just lend an ear when needed. She keeps a pleasant upbeat attitude regardless of the tasks that may be at hand, and calms the waters when you need it the most! She is such a pleasure to work with and makes each one of her underwriters feel connected (working remote can be difficult sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚ )
    and appreciated. She expects more of us than standard which helps make us better at what we do but always keeps clear communication with expectations and overall daily workflow. Unfortunately, because of how she navigates between departments to get solutions or is in the background of all the details that may be requiring managements input she is sometimes not recognized as the facilitator tied it all together and it goes unnoticed a lot of the time ( I feel)
    I just would like to thank her for always answering the phone, willing to help or listen and setting the bar high so we become better in all aspects. Thank you Beth!

    – December 21, 2017

    Kathy, you have been nothing short of AMAZINGLY supportive since the day I came on-board.

You believing in me (and expressing it!) means the world. Thank you for being a person that I can’t WAIT to be around, and I look forward to everything our team will achieve together!

    John Lassere gave props to Joshua Montano

    Two words: Initiative and receptivity.

    Joshua has taken such initiative and done so much to help me transition into my role at AFN. Unprompted, he requested and followed through with getting me an official corporate phone and headset. Since I work remotely as a developer, this meant a lot to me and made me feel much more a part of the AFN team, all the more so since he did it on his own. He also has been proactive in keeping me in the loop and following up with me about projects, communicating questions and areas for adjustment, and does so while keeping a friendly but professional demeanor.

    He’s also been receptive to new implementation methods for the coding behind our projects, giving me the chance to explore ways to make Encompass assemblies and form coding more efficient and easier to maintain. As our team has grown to include two new people, he also was receptive to how we can better collaborate as developers. He helped us get GitHub, a best-in-class version control management service, and took the initiative to reach out to us for thoughts on how we can collectively manage our resources efficiently.

    Joshua’s initiative and receptivity make me feel welcome at AFN, and further motivate me to perform above expectations. He’s someone you want to do well for, because he goes out of his way to do well for you.
