As we welcome the new year, we’d like to continue our employee spotlight series by introducing you to Scott Willis, our ERP Administrator. Scott joined our employee owned family in May and has immersed himself into our ESOP culture by supporting all things P21. While sitting down with Scott, we had the opportunity to learn more about his strengths and passions.
What is your role? Briefly describe what you do.
“I am an ERP Administrator. I handle anything related to Prophet 21 (P21). This includes the management of data, setting up new users, resolving end user issues or bugs within P21, establishing and/or improving process, etc.”
Who/what inspires you?
“My kids are my biggest inspiration. I have 2 girls and a boy. My oldest daughter is 14, my son is 6 and my youngest daughter is 4.”
If you had to pick one strength you bring to the team, what would it be?
“Identifying and solving problems. I’ve been blessed with the gift of problem solving, often when no one thought or realized any existed.”
What do you like to do in your free time?
“I love to go camping and kayaking. One of our family’s favorite spots is the San Marcos River. I have quite a bit of family in town there, and we really enjoy getting all the kids together and taking to the water, while spending our nights under the open sky.”
If you could learn how to do one thing, what would it be?
“I would like to learn to speak additional languages.”
Where were you born?
“I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. I moved to Houston in 2010.”
What’s the best thing about your job?
“I enjoy the variety that comes along with my job. There are many different aspects of my job that allow me to constantly work on something new and different.”
What’s been one of your proudest moments at EOHI?
“I’ve been a part of EOHI for just a couple of months now, and I’ll admit the ESOP experience has been a culture shock for me. While I haven’t had a “Eureka!” or “Out of this World” moment yet, there is a sense of pride, drive, and responsibility you get from people here I don’t recall witnessing with previous jobs.”
How do you define success?
“Success to me is finding your gift and using to establish a livelihood, i.e. Making a living doing something you would be willing to do for free.”
Where is your favorite place that you’ve traveled to?
“I’ve gotten to visit many cool places, but Costa Rica has been the best one so far.”
