As Freestar continues to grow in size and strength, we’ve decided to start a monthly blog series highlighting a different member of the Freestar dream team.
This month, we would like to introduce our May Employee Of The Month, the one who ensures our clients continue to get paid accurately and on time, Kevin Stone!
Most people call me ‘Red’, but as a small kid, when I was bullied by older kids, they use to call me Fireball.
Accounting & Finance Manager.
Financial and Operations Strategy, along with all things Accounting and Finance.
The business model was new and unique to me, which I found fascinating; I have been apart of the start-up culture, which I have been missing; but most importantly the people. I love to be around smart people, and I saw that immediately upon my arrival and speaking with everyone here at Freestar.
I graduated with a BA, MA and MBA debt free, self-financed.
Building relationships with both internal and external stakeholders (and of course improving profit margins).
Spreadsheets, formulas and a lot of network/publisher research.
For the industry as a whole to continue evolving, but am interested in how the regulatory component unfolds by state and federally.
Chico, California, but also San Diego.
Golf, golf and more golf; I also enjoying working out, cycling, rowing or getting in a hike on Camelback or Piesta Peak.
5-day cattle drive from the mountains to the Idaho to valley.
Yes, she is part english bulldog, part boxer and 100% spoiled brat.
Potatoes. I’d make gnocchi, mashed potatoes, vodka, french fries, chips, lots of variety!
Speak another language.
Ability to workout/being active, this provides me the time to decompress and reflect on the day.
