Meet Debbie Gleeson, Employee of the Month
Honda of Grays Harbor is pleased to announce our Employee of the Month for July 2019 – Debbie Gleeson. Debbie is our Office Manager and has been with us since day one. Her exceptional work ethic, financial skills and dedication to quality contributed to her being selected for this honor.
Debbie was born in Torrington, Connecticut and she graduated from the University of Bridgeport with a B.S. in Gerontology. How did Debbie get from Gerontology to being an office manager in a dealership? It all started when she pumped gas and did the books for auto repair and body shops in New England. After suffering through the long, cold New England winters Debbie decided to move to Seattle in 1984 which led to her getting a job as a file clerk at a Ford Dealership. The controller at the Ford dealership encouraged Debbie to work hard and to utilize her previous bookkeeping experience and work towards becoming an office manager. This goal became a reality when she was hired at a BMW dealership in Seattle in 1992. As they say the rest is history!
Debbie interests are varied…. She enjoys traveling, especially to Alaska, tending her many plants, playing slot machines and amassing her clothing collection. She collects rubber duckies (which are on display on her desk at work). She loves animals, especially cats and dotes on her own kitty Roxie. She enjoys reading and is currently reading book 5 of 9 of a historical fiction series.
Debbie says “She enjoys working at Honda of Grays Harbor because she and other team members are given the opportunity to grow to their full potential. Nothing is perfect but we aim to be a happy, productive and a successful team”.
Congratulations Debbie and we appreciate all your hard work and you keeping our books in line!
