Employee Spotlight: Judy Gathigia, Financial Assistant Accountant

18 February 2016

Judy Gathigia joined ikeGPS two years ago as our financial assistant accountant, and we sure are lucky to have such a dedicated and friendly worker on our team. Let’s take a moment to get to know Judy.

Please describe your role.

I provide accurate accounting and processing support and am responsible for maintaining records of invoices, payments and transactions. I manage both our creditors and debtors as well as handle in-house accounting issues. Also, I run payroll and perform general ledger reconciliations.

What motivates you in your role?

I always want to ensure that the clients I work with, both internally and externally, get the best customer service I can provide. I am also very results driven. Doing a good job and achieving the desired end result is a big motivator for me.

What were you doing before you joined ikeGPS?

I worked in a similar role for a construction company in Christchurch that helped with the earthquake rebuild.

Why did you decide to join ikeGPS?

When I looked into working at ikeGPS, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass. It was and is a growing company, both in human resources and market dominance, and it was what I have always sought – a challenge and opportunity to practice and hone my skills.

What do you love about working at ikeGPS most?

The people are great. We have a global team that is very knowledgeable in their fields and are always willing to help and share their knowledge.

What did you want to be when you grow up?

A neurosurgeon but that proved difficult when I realized I couldn’t stand the sight of blood. I have always been good with numbers and enjoyed accounting, so it was the next best thing.

What are some of your favorite outside office activities?

I love traveling and immersing myself in different cultures. I also enjoy reading and spending time on the many beautiful beaches around Wellington, New Zealand, especially in the summer.

If you could create your perfect meal, what would it be?

Pilau, a Kenyan spicy fried rice dish, with kachumbari, a tomato salsa made the Kenyan way.

What’s your dream vacation?

Driving across Europe would be a dream come true.
