Employee Highlight: Meet Timothy Krell
Where did you grow up and go to school?
I grew up and went to high school in Hammonton, NJ.
What other jobs have you had before Bethany Associates?
Bethany Associates was my first job! I had the privilege to start working for Bethany after high school and I’ve never left.
What skills have you learned from previous employment?
I’m self-taught in IT and infrastructure. I do a lot of system administration and application development for the web and smartphone. I have a lot of opportunities to continue to teach myself and expand my IT skills.
How long have you been employed with Bethany Associates?
I’ve been working with Bethany Associates for eleven years.
What does a typical day look like for you?
I spend a large portion of my week developing the software we use for creating our schedules, invoices and estimates. I also provide support for our computer systems and research more efficient technologies for our company. My other responsibilities include payroll, processing AP and even washing windows. I’m never bored because each week brings a new challenge!
What needs and challenges are you able to meet for people?
I enjoy the challenge of doing “a lot” with “less.” I like improving our in-house software to always enable us to provide reliable services. Usually this means keeping our employee’s smartphones and computers working so they can focus on service and not the maddening world of technology. I like helping our technicians offer a great service at a competitive price.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
I like making other people’s jobs enjoyable, easier and more productive.
Tell us about your family and what you will do for vacation this year.
I just got engaged to an incredibly beautiful and loving woman! She’s also a fellow employee, working as one of our secretaries. If you call for an estimate you will likely be greeted by her infectiously cheerful “hello”! We are getting married in September and taking our honeymoon in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains.
