Employee of the Week: Jesse Muniz
February 14, 2014
Albuquerque- City of Albuquerque Assistant Accounting Officer Jesse Muniz of the Department of Finance (DFA) is this week’s employee of the week. Muniz is being honored for his willingness to work outside his job assignment in order to share his expertise with another department that required assistance to complete their financial reporting obligations.
Jesse has worked for the department since 2010 when he was hired on as a principal accountant. He came into the city with previous governmental auditing experience and quickly proved to be an invaluable member of the DFA team, exhibiting extraordinary ability to complete financial tasks relating to the general fund.
When the sister agency was having difficulty fulfilling certain fiscal reporting obligations due to a recent software conversion, Jesse was called to assist. Jesse didn’t hesitate to take on the additional duties and for the last three weeks, Jesse has been assigned exclusively to the agency, helping with various accounting procedures and reports, as well as reconciliation of financial statements. He has performed these tasks with exceptional professionalism and skill, facilitating better procedures for the agency going forward. Through his hard work and willingness to go above and beyond his every day job requirements, Jesse Muniz is a tremendous asset to the city.
