Organizational Excellence

Engage. Simplify. Enable the Mission

Jim Bowen

Office of Sponsored Programs
August, 2015

Jim's nominator summed up his contributions as a “wizard.” While specializing in accounts with outstanding receivable balances that have been in collection, Jim remains solutions-oriented and dedicated to understanding the problem and seeing it through to resolution. This work requires extraordinary collaboration to untangle and uncover the root cause and bring it to closure.

In the last several months, Jim helped collect nearly $150,000 of difficult-to-collect accounts. His patience, persistence, and relationship-building skills brought closure to these problematic accounts that would otherwise go to settlement.
