Numbers are one of our favorite things. We enjoy calculating how many devices you can connect to the ALLO Blast, or the amount of money we have raised and donated to local schools. The list goes on and on, but one thing is for certain one of our teams here at ALLO loves crunching digits even more. That’s right! You guessed it: our Accounting Team.

We rely heavily on this team’s attention to detail, analytical skills, and abilities to process large amounts of numerical data. Daily this team records financial transactions for our business processes, prepares financial statements, and ensures our business runs smoothly. Let’s meet some of the folks on this team.

Marsha is our Accounting Manager and the fearless leader of this group. She grew up in Verden, Nebraska, living the farm life. It taught her how to work hard and set her up for success. As a child, she wanted to be a nurse, but something clicked for her in high school: working in business was in her future.

A typical day for her includes handling ALLO financials, paying bills, reporting expenses, and leading her team to success. She and the team also jump in to help with ALLO’s annual audit.

“I’ve got a great team who works well together and can do anything put in front of them. They are always willing to help when it is needed. I feel responsible for everything that happens on my team and nurture everyone on the team to excel. I’m really good at juggling multiple projects and can focus on the task at hand and like looking for insights on what improvements can be made.”

She enjoys working for ALLO, because of the way we are changing the game and delivering customers an unmatched experience.

“In this business, you feel like you are making an impact in your community, and you can see how people are excited about that. You can see and hear it.”

Hitting the gym for a brisk walk on the treadmill and setting in at the end of the evening with a good book is her favorite way to unwind. You can also find her at almost every University of Nebraska Volleyball game. She is a season ticket holder who adores the nail-biting atmosphere of a good set.

Nancy has over 30 years of experience in accounting. At ALLO, she specializes in expense reports, purchase orders, and other ALLO transactions. She loves that she gets to work with folks in and outside of ALLO and says there is always something new to learn. You can count on her to crack a joke every now and then to keep things lighthearted and fun. She enjoys reading a good book and spending time with her husband and grandchildren.

Another one of our talented accountants is Robert. He uses his critical thinking skills every day in his role. Checking bank account balances, entering invoices, and filling out journal entries is just a few of the things he does. His favorite part about his role at ALLO is comparing internal and external financial records. “I enjoy reconciling accounts. It is almost like hide and seek where you find one end and then hunt for the other.” In his downtime, you’ll find him watching movies and playing sports.

Wendy is one of the helpful and hard-working members on this team also. Most of her days are spent paying bills, responding to requests from ALLO departments and vendors, and researching. Growing up, she loved math and always knew she would use that skill in some way. She applied at ALLO in 2021 and landed the role as an accountant.

“I was impressed by the kind of people ALLO likes to hire, their strong commitment to ethical behavior, and the kind of corporate culture they encourage. I like the fact that we are involved in communities and seek to provide exceptional customer service. It feels good to be a part of this organization.” After a long day, she enjoys kicking back and relaxing on her deck with her husband and a glass of chardonnay.

We are so thankful that we have these talented individuals on our fiber fam. Their drive and hardworking work ethic ensures things are running smoothly so we can deliver the best experience to our customers day in and day out.
