September 2022
Welcome to September! I can already smell the pumpkin spice in the air! By now all of the kiddos are back in school and there is only 130 days left until Christmas, wow this year has flown by!

Trade show season is upon us, check out our calendar below and a big Congratulations to our newest Employee of the Month - Ashley Chandler who has just been named as Director of Corporate Administration!

Thank you for reading our September issue of Airways Insider and feel free to share on social media!
"Employee of the Month"
"Having worked with Ashley for over 25 years, it is only fitting that at this time that she be named Employee of the Month since she has just been named as Director of Corporate Administration.

"She brings with her more than 25 yrs of experience at Airways, working first in the Domestic Accounting department, then moving to International and managing the day to day accounting of that division. In her role as International Accounting Supervisor, Ashley has instituted improved accounting processes and taken advantage of technology to greatly enhance our A/P & A/R functions in the international area. Also, for the last few years, she has worked closely with Kathy in administration, human resources, and payroll responsibilities.

"Not only has Ashley been an excellent employee but she’s a great person to work alongside, always fair, conscientious, and organized." ~ Denny Wood, President  
"Having worked directly with Ashley for well over a decade and being her friend and colleague for twice that long, I could not be more excited to have her return in a leadership position in her new role as Director of Corporate Administration.  

"While the challenges will be great, there is no one who I could have more confidence in than Ashley to assume this position.  Well learned and thoughtful, Ashley has experienced just about every curve the position requires to be resolved in a timely and professional manner.  She has proven her ability to handle many different fluid situations at the same time, which will benefit her greatly while moving between the worlds of Payables and Receivables, Claims and Commissions, Cash Reporting and Corrections, as well as other various responsibilities. 

At the end of the day, Ashley is a leader and will build a team to support Airways efforts to accommodate our many growing business interests."  ~ Grant Green, Administration
"It has been an absolute joy to work with Ashley during her time in the International Accounting department. With the ins and outs of international accounting she has done an excellent job with our agents overseas. We will miss the daily interaction with her!"
~ Dan Helton, Manager, Int'l Commercial Air Services
"Ashley Chandler – She’s just a great person in general, always encouraging others! She runs our Int’l accounting department with ease. You can always count on her to assist with anything accounting wise. From notary public, to exchange rates, contra statements & any other accounting questions, domestic or int’l.

"She’s extremely knowledgeable and great with our office colleagues, customers & foreign partners alike. Besides being a great employee, she makes us all feel like we are part of the Airways family, not just co-workers." 
~ Patty Osburn, Manager, International Trade Show Services

"Ashley has been my primary go-to person for all things accounting in the International department for as long as I can remember.

I’ve come to her with a number of challenges and have yet to be able to stump her. 
She has always been able to provide me with answers, assistance and support in short order and typically has the answers at the tip of her fingers. In many cases, she has the answer off the top of her head.

I consider Ashley to be a valuable asset and have relied on her heavily in the past and will continue to do so.

She has definitely provided “value-added” services to our department and has made numerous improvements along the way. I appreciate her greatly." ~ Jerome Casey, VP, Ocean Operations
