Great job Michael Mair, TRS senior accountant. He’s employee of the month for December. This is his second time to receive the honor. “I was thrilled,” he said. “Pleasantly surprised.” Michael has worked for TRS for about eight years.
He works hard to make sure the accounting department operates at the highest level possible and without issues. When he’s expected to complete an assignment, he makes sure it’s done right and on time. Often, he handles emergency payments such as housing checks that need to reach specific places overnight. He strives to make improvements to existing accounting practices to save time and complete work more quickly. In the past, he’s developed spreadsheet programs that have saved a significant amount of time with recurring accounting duties.
Michael has worked in accounting for 25 years. He previously was a tool and die machinist for 10 years. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business from California State University in Fullerton, Calif. He was born and raised in California and moved to Arkansas about 20 years ago. He and his wife, Dianna, have three children.
