The Storm Chaser Award is a quarterly employee recognition program in which peers nominate colleagues for work that exceeds expectations and goes above and beyond what's required in their job description. Storm Chasers help enhance our culture, proactively seek solutions, and affect positive change within the company.
During a recent quarterly update, we announced the latest incredible nominees, featuring new and repeat candidates, who were recognized for work that goes above and beyond expectations. The nominations shared examples of how each employee lives out SpinCar's values and spoke to each candidate's dedication.
We're excited to announce the winners of SpinCar's most recent Storm Chaser Award: Nino Kezherashvili, Meeghan Mussington, and Kim Roberson! Check out our winners and the great things their peers had to say about each of them.
Nino Kezherashvili, Onboarding Team Lead
"Nino routinely works long hours so that there is as much overlap as possible between the U.S. and Tbilisi work schedules given the eight-hour time difference."
"She spearheaded efforts to help ensure we were launching as many Sales AI accounts each week as possible and keeps everyone organized and aligned each morning during daily standups."
"Nino dove in head-first after the merger and quickly built great relationships with her U.S. team counterparts!"
When asked what being a Storm Chaser means to her, Nino said "To me, being a Storm Chaser means to be ready for problems, being selfless, supportive and ready to pivot. I’m profoundly honored to be named as a Storm Chaser among so many hardworking, passionate and motivated people. Thanks to the Georgian and U.S. SpinFam for finding me worthy to receive this award. It means a lot to me."
Meeghan Mussington, Payroll Specialist
"Meeghan took the initiative to explore Paylocity to ensure we are getting the most out of the platform - finding ways to integrate the entirety of our hiring process into one space and identifying great training opportunities for our organization like unconscious bias videos."
"It is such a treat working with Meeghan because I know she is always willing to do more than her share to see a project through. Not to mention, she is one super incredible Mama to two fierce girls. I so admire how she balances (and rocks) her personal and professional life."
"There is SO much that falls on her plate (and so much that falls on the table that she selflessly scoops up), yet you will never hear her complain."
When asked what being a Storm Chaser means to her, Meeghan said "I am truly honored to be recognized as a Storm Chaser. My role here impacts all my colleagues and I want them to know that I am here to always help. Being nominated by my colleagues who I deeply respect is a great source of inspiration for me to continue to make a positive impact whenever I can."
Kim Roberson, Regional Sales Manager
"Kim's positive attitude, transparency and communication with every department is consistent and never fails to amaze me"
"Even with having four children, Kim's time management is out of this world and she's always willing to stay late to ensure she leaves work knowing she's done her absolute best."
"Kim is continuously thinking outside the box for new ideas and is able to bring in other SpinCar employees' skills to show customers the value that SpinCar brings to each dealership."
When asked what being a Storm Chaser means to her, Kim said "To be recognized as a Storm Chaser means so much to me! I’m surrounded by teammates with incredible energy, passion and grit, who make coming to work not feel like “work” at all. The collaboration and camaraderie at SpinCar is something I haven’t encountered at any other company. I find myself feeling genuinely excited about coming to work each day - I never thought I’d say that about a “job!" I feel so blessed to be a part of this awesome company and a member of the SpinFam."
We could not be more proud of these three Storm Chasers. They embody everything SpinCar stands for and are wonderful assets to our team! We are excited to continue to reward and recognize employees with this award every quarter throughout the year.
