I am the Controller here at DKN and am responsible for managing our finances. I received my Accounting degree in India and started by managing general accounts. Here, at DKN, I am able to manage this fund like it is my own and that trust is invaluable. As you’ve probably heard it a million times, we’re all family here.
I have been with DKN Hotels since 2013 and have worked in both the Reservation Center and at our Holiday Inn Express West LA property before my turn here in the Support Center as part of the Accounting team. I first came to DKN hotels through the referral of an old friend who still works for DKN to this day. I love that DKN has an atmosphere that allows me to create a difference in people’s lives by using my experience, training and knowledge and I enjoy putting these into practice to help my team succeed. I am a successful graduate of the DKN Ladder program, which is my favorite of the company’s many programs. The Ladder program is where I learned to put my skills to use in both in my everyday life and professionally. DKN is a company where we all get together as a family to interact, joke, laugh and have a good time, which means FUN is my favorite of our values.
In my role as Accounts Payable, I get to make hotel GM’s and vendors happy, by getting accounts paid so they’re able to keep flowing with day to day needs. When I first started at DKN, we were a new team, and over the last year, we’ve created a synchronous, collaborative and trusting environment within our department. Aside from the day to day, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in a couple of programs DKN has volunteered for — such as the Special Olympics torch run in Long Beach, where we were able to give back to a great cause.
