“Leaders become great not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.” — John Maxwell
Known to many as one of the kindest and hardest working people at EquipmentShare, Lisa Evans embodies our company’s core values through her “service” leadership skills, drive and integrity in her role as Director of Finance.
The finance department has tackled many challenging projects this year including, but not limited to a successful audit, conversion to a new lease accounting standard, and a significant move to a new financing structure. Through these processes, Lisa helped lead an effort to create new policies and procedures to make future processes go as smoothly as possible.
Multiple nominations for Lisa mentioned her work ethic, humility and her ability to make those around her feel comfortable and welcome on the team.
“Lisa has given countless hours to help bridge gaps between departments to allow the company to work successfully and efficiently,” Joanna Kollmeyer, finance manager, said. “Lisa always meets deadlines and exceeds expectations on every project given to her.”
Lisa is a go-to resource for nearly every member of the finance and asset management teams, and if she does not immediately know the answer to a question, she will quickly find one. Lisa drives her team to accomplish their goals and succeed, always leading by example.
“In my 25-year career, I can say honestly, and without hesitation, that Lisa is the best supervisor I have ever worked with,” asset manager Sam Giroux said. “The welfare of her employees comes before anything else. She has our back when times get tough and is the first person to celebrate our successes. She is the glue that keeps us together and heading in the right direction.”
In her spare time outside of work, Lisa serves on the Habitat for Humanity board and previously was a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) for children in need.
For her shining example of leadership, her ability to bring teams together toward a common goal, and her unwavering commitment and integrity to the team, we congratulate Lisa Evans for earning the October 2021 Core Employee Award.
