Employee Spotlight: Anna Yang

This month, we are featuring Anna Yang. Anna has been with Suntell for over 10 years. She loves that as a small company, Suntell has offered her a lot of opportunity to fill different roles over the years. She has been able to directly see the impact of her efforts- from successful implementations, to influences on product design, to changes internally that she has impacted. Most recently, Anna was promoted to Director of Services, in addition to her existing role as Product Manager.

Anna grew up in Holmen, WI and has a Bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in Sociology. Prior to working at Suntell, she worked at Park Bank in Holmen, WI a community bank that uses Suntell’s LMS and SDI. She started as a teller, then worked as a loan processor for secondary market residential real estate loans, and finally worked with the Suntell software, doing mostly documentation tracking, imaging, and loan reviews. In total, Anna has been in the banking industry for 16 years.

Anna’s favorite tip is to scan…scan everything. The bank that she previously worked for was 100% image by the time she left and she saw the successful implementation of SDI and the enormous impact it had on their day-to-day jobs. She says “Once you move to imaged files, you can never go back to paper.”  She has learned to be flexible while working at Suntell. Implementation projects, customers, and development projects have varying needs and demands that require adaptability. This flexibility has translated to home life as well, and has helped her find a work/life balance.

Anna loves living in Chicago with her husband, Ger, and their two children, Theodore (6) and Quentin (4). They frequently visit museums, the zoo, and the art institute. Anna also enjoys writing and hot yoga. She takes 3-4 90 min classes per week in a 105 degree room with 40% humidity. Occasionally, she also participates in 5K races and relaxes by cooking for her family.
