Jessica Wright / IT Project Manager

Kim has always given 100% for every project she's been a part of and her continuous efforts to help improve the way we are doing business has contributed to those initiatives. Her thought of what's best for the business combined with what's best for the company plays a role in her every day actions. She is very mindful about the value she brings to the table and makes sure that we are always thinking about how to bring value out from everyone else as well. I have always been able to count on her contributions with every phone call, meeting and project interaction. She is very accountable for her work and owns responsibility to do the right thing. Kim is a very valuable and trustworthy co-worker and that shines through her efforts.

Jeff Gilbert / Project Manager II

Kim has done an excellent job on the EDI Replacement project.  On a project team lacking resources, she has stepped up to perform every role asked of her, to include systems and requirements analyst, designer, developer, tester and trainer, all the while displaying patience and the willingness to work the additional hours necessary to accomplish whatever jobs where asked of her.  In my opinion, Kim's dedication to the EDI Replacement project is the single most important factor that enabled Commerce Bank to deploy the new, secure EDI platform into the production environment in 2014.  Furthermore, her attention to detail and conviction that the new EDI platform must be 100% production ready will assuredly pay dividends as clients are migrated to the new platform in 2015.

Neil Genilo / IT Manager

Kim has used her gift of seeing the details, proactively identifying risks/issues, and analyzing the solution before it impacts the project.  Kim communicates the details of the content/issue/action item and adjusting the way she communicates that to her audience and fellow team members, pointing out the "Bottom line" impact and providing a recommendation to address it. I feel blessed to have Kim on the team and appreciate all of her contributions to the project and all her support of team members.  Her talents and contributions are very appreciated.  Our company would not have successfully gone this far with the project without Kim's much appreciated contributions.
