NTC's Assistant Vice President of Research has been promoted to VP of Research.
Eric Kenney has been with NTC for nearly 11 years and we are proud to announce that he is now overseeing NTC's Research Division. Eric will lead 32 team members and all functions pertaining to our Research area like property reports, AVRs, AVXs, document retrieval, our in house research team as well as our nationwide abstractor services.
Eric recently helped develop and implement the NTC Success Track Mentoring Program, which has been a great success in its pilot stage so far. His initiative to get this program off the ground exemplifies commitment to excellence far beyond just his own area and it is precisely this type of forward-thinking that NTC values most in its senior leadership at the company.
We asked Eric a couple of questions so we can get to know him better:
1. What professional advice can you give to NTC team members who want to advance in their career? There is an expression to dress for the job you want and not the job you have. Take that as a metaphor and be inquisitive about the job you want and be the best at the one you have. Also, take that one step further and expand your work philosophy to be as centric as possible between being task and company focused. A person who is also focused on the task at hand will be efficient at one process, never thinking of the before or after. A person who is too company focused never stops to get the task done, such as a dreamer and not a doer. A centric work philosophy meets in the middle to dream big and make it happen, understanding how it will affect the before and after processes; see the forest for the trees.
2. What is your favorite part about working at NTC? I have many favorite things about working at NTC. The staff who work for me are some of the best people and that definitely tops as one of my favorites. In correlation to that, I would have to say one of my favorite things is making the impossible happen. Sometimes, strategy and tactics from top down only go so far and it is the amazing staff of NTC that truly make it happen.
Eric has been an instrumental team member at NTC, working his way up and working in every part of Research. Please join us in congratulating him on this exciting announcement!
