Employee Spotlight: Christine Minaya, Senior Accountant
The employees of NFS Leasing, Inc. consistently strive for excellence both personally and professionally. Working as a team, they encourage each other to be better people and employees. These values are shared throughout the team, but some go above and beyond. The willingness to not only learn new ideas and practices, but to share acquired knowledge, is what makes NFS Leasing’s Senior Accountant, Christine Minaya, so special.
Christine Minaya joined the NFS Leasing Team in 2014 and has been an outstanding member of the team ever since. In those six years, Christine has built a long list of accomplishments. Most recently was her promotion to Senior Accountant in 2019. Because of her experience and skills as an accountant, many of the other team members look to Ms. Minaya for guidance when facing problems they are unable to deal with.
Sharing knowledge, experience, and skills with others is something that Christine learned herself as a student, and is now utilizing at NFS Leasing.
Employee Spotlight: Michael McClendon, Vice President Business Development
NFS Leasing, Inc. prides itself on providing both its customers and its communities with high quality service. High integrity is a characteristic that NFS Leasing looks for in all of its employees. This month, we are pleased to highlight how a member of the NFS Team is fueling growth for both our customers and the community.
Since joining the NFS Leasing Team in 2019, Michael McClendon has been an exceptional example of what it means to work hard for both his clients and his community. At NFS, Mr. McClendon has created several innovative deals for his clients. Since his arrival he has made an immediate impact on the NFS business and is highly regarded by his clients. When asked about what made Mr. McClendon a great partner one client responded, “His communication and approach made it easy for us to form a plan and move forward quickly. Mike was clear in what NFS would and would not be able to do for us. We really appreciated that transparency and it allowed us to find a workable solution without a lot of back and forth, and to start our project on schedule.”
Being a great employee and partner to his clients is only one of many great attributes of Michael McClendon. He is also an active member in his community in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“The Rucker Effect” A Featured Story in the Chamber Exchange Newspaper
WORCESTER On Thursday, October 4, the Worcester Historical Museum (WHM) will award its annual Harvey Ball Smile award to Cliff Rucker.
WHM is the only organization solely dedicated to preserving all facets of Worcester’s history and sharing that story with both current and future generations. The Harvey Ball Smile award is given out annually to an individual or organization that has made a significant positive impact on the city.
What is interesting to note is many past recipients or organizations that have received this distinguished award have usually had a long time presence in Worcester. However, Rucker only arrived on the Worcester scene in August 2015 when he was exploring the city as one of several sites where he might potentially take ownership of a professional hockey minor league team. In appropriately honoring him, the WHM has recognized what I call “The Rucker Effect”.
Person of the Year: Cliff Rucker
Worcester Magazine’s annual Person of the Year issue highlights those in the community that have made the largest impact on the city and you’d have a hard time naming someone that has done more to change the Worcester landscape in the past 12 months than Cliff Rucker.
Rucker came onto the Worcester scene back in February 2016, a relative unknown in the city. Billed as a “North Shore businessman” in quote blocks and headlines throughout the ensuing months, the president of NFS Leasing out of Beverly would have plenty more in store for the city as the months ticked by. While the hockey team and his investments and development in the city have dramatically changed Worcester’s landscape, it is his work ethic and “do it right” attitude that makes him our 2017 Worcester Magazine Person of the Year.
Kids Kicking Cancer
Kids Kicking Cancer is a very exciting and innovative program to assist young cancer patients to become empowered, pro-active participants in their own medical treatment. Using the techniques found in the martial arts, we train our children to meditate and breathe through their chemotherapies as well as envision powerful healing thoughts. Despite the ravaging effects of childhood cancer, our young participants are guided towards the positive aspects of growth and spiritual strength that lies within the individual.
