Wenatchee, WA.- Kris Loomis, CPA, CVA, Managing Principal of Cordell, Neher & Company, PLLC has recently returned from a two-day training at the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle.
The Executive Lean Leadership Retreat was held January 11-12. Loomis attended on behalf of the Confluence Health Board of Directors, of which she serves as Chair.
The two-day retreat focused on identifying behaviors that can influence an organization’s ability to implement and sustain a lean culture, such as visible and committed leadership, a shared vision, and aligned expectations. The retreat included individual and organizational self-assessments and interactive learning on how to successfully engage staff at all levels of an organization.
“This training was very impactful, and I’ve identified several practices that can be implemented at Cordell, Neher. I have a deeper understanding of the behaviors and strategic approaches needed to create an organization-wide culture of continuous improvement, and how to develop the infrastructure needed to ensure alignment, accountability and sustainability. These best practices are of tremendous value for Confluence Health, and Cordell, Neher,” explained Loomis.
With a wide range of practical application experiences to draw from, Loomis offers ‘turn-key’ solutions in multiple business arenas. She began her professional career managing an EPA certified drinking water quality laboratory in Boise, Idaho and relocated to Wenatchee in 1994 to become Operations Manager for an internet service provider. The company rapidly expanded and went public in 1996. In 1997 Loomis formed a management consulting practice working primarily with high growth and start-up companies on their planning and finance aspects.
She joined Cordell, Neher & Company, PLLC in the Leavenworth office to assist in the expansion of their consulting practice and transferred to the Wenatchee office in May 2003. She continues to build on her consulting background and work in the litigation services division, and currently serves as Cordell, Neher & Company, PLLC’s Managing Principal.
