Ruppert Landscape is pleased to announce the promotion of Hunter Thompson to director of accounting, systems and reporting. In this role, he will be responsible for providing department oversight, ensuring accounting system integrity, managing the annual financial audit, reporting internal financial statements timely and accurately, ensuring adherence to internal control and accounting policies, developing and implementing new controls and procedures, and various other special accounting projects as needed.
Thompson holds a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting, Business Administration, and Economics from McDaniel College. He began his career with Ruppert as an intern in 2012 and he worked in that role for several summers until he came onboard full-time in 2014 as an AP Specialist. Since then, Hunter has served in almost all capacities within the department, most recently as senior accountant, and has been promoted now for the third time in recent years.
“Hunter possesses extensive knowledge of Ruppert systems, procedures, and operations, and uses that experience to develop and maintain accounting standards necessary for external reporting while ensuring our internal customers receive the value and information needed for operational decision making,” said Jennifer Saah, vice president of accounting and financial risk. “Additionally, Hunter’s commitment to our culture and values has made him one of the key mentors, trainers, and motivational leaders within the department for years.”
“I am very excited about having the opportunity to make a larger impact; this position will challenge me in new ways, and I am looking forward to meeting the challenge,” said Thompson. “I am also looking forward to working more closely with people who I have looked up to during my ten years with the company.”
