Ewald Employee Spotlight - Bill Monn

Ewald Consulting prides itself on the outstanding cultivation of employees who work in both our St. Paul and Chicago offices. Without a team of driven, passionate and overall innovative people, where would Ewald stand? If you've been curious as to learning more about the internal aspects of Ewald - the people - what better way to start then through our employee spotlights. 

We sat down with Bill Monn, our VP of Member Services, to get to know him a little better.


Q: If you were the 8th dwarf, what would your name be and why?

A: Curious. I always want to know how the pieces fit together. That’s important to me. It’s not just the information; it’s also the context.

 

Q: If you were to describe Ewald as a car, what would it be and why?

A: Ewald as a car would be an SUV. It has many attributes and can do any jobs to fit the needs of just about everyone. I was going to say minivan, but an SUV is the newer version of the minivan.

 

Q: Who is someone you look up to in the office and why?

A: I look to just about everyone in the office for something. Everyone was put on this Earth with a unique skill set and they’re all really good at something. The quicker you can find out what those things are in people, the more special those people become and the easier it is to work with them.

 

Q: What is one small or big life goal are you working towards right now, professional or personal?

A: People have different phases in their lives. Career-wise, I’ve rounded 3rd base. The finish line is in sight, but I want to finish bringing value as long as I’m doing this. I will walk out the door the same day that I feel like I’m just waiting to hit my retirement age, but I feel like I’m still bringing value here. I hate when people say things like “When are you going to retire?” and they answer “I have 123 days, 20 minutes, and 4 seconds.” If you’re that miserable, just retire now!

 

Q: What is something you recommend to other people?

A: I recommend to be motivated and excited about stuff. Additionally, I’d recommend having a positive attitude; it’s contagious! Spread happiness.

 

Q: What is one thing that not a lot of people know you really care about?

A: I care about people and their careers. I also care about people who want to do their job the right way. What’s really been a fun thing for me to do is helping people early in their careers to help show them how to do things the right way. The fulfillment they feel when they do that is awesome. People will be much more satisfied as individuals and among other people if you do this and go above and beyond.
