For this week’s staff spotlight, we’d like to introduce you to our Billing Administrator, Gilbert Thrall!
SAV: Hi Gilbert! Thanks for taking the time to chat. We’d love to learn more about who you are.
Thrall: Hi! My full name is Gilbert Arthur Thrall, some call me Gilly. I hail from the lands of Minnesota. I enjoy playing video games and hanging out with my friends. I enjoy being silly.
SAV: What do you do here at SAV?
Thrall: I am in charge of doing the SAV bookkeeping, which entails recording our cash flow as well as auditing our records. I am also in charge of payroll.
SAV: What do you enjoy the most about working at SAV?
Thrall: I like being part of a good company and I enjoy laughing with my co-workers.
SAV: If you were to do a voice-over for any type of animated movie/television character, who would it be and why?
Thrall: Hmmmm, perhaps something like the Cheshire Cat. I like the idea of being a mysterious background character.
SAV: What’s your favorite season?
Thrall: I wouldn’t say I have a favorite. It depends. I enjoy certain parts of every season, like tons of snow in the winter or warm nights in the summer/fall.
SAV: What’s your favorite meal to cook up around the holiday season?
Thrall: I don’t do a ton of cooking myself. Though, I enjoy a good hearty stew or perhaps some Who-Pudding and Roast Beast…
SAV: What’s the last thing you watched on TV? Would you recommend it to others?
Thrall: The last television show that I watched was Hannibal on Amazon Prime. I would recommend it to those who enjoy a good psychological thriller and who like Mad Mikkelsen.
SAV: Where’s one place in the U.S where you would like to visit?
Thrall: Perhaps, somewhere in Alaska. I have seen a lot of cool pictures and think it would be fun to explore.
SAV: If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
Thrall: A Mote of Starstuff
SAV: What accomplishment were you most proud of last year?
Thrall: I was really happy that I got our accounting systems updated to a new system that allows us to better track all of our expenses.
SAV: Have any new year resolutions?
Thrall: I am focused on working towards a better version of myself, a software update.
