Susann Tully, CFO of Diamond K Inc.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

Play an instrument. My sons play the cello and bass but I have never picked up an instrument.

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

Funny you should ask. We just talked about this. I would buy a brand new house that I wouldn’t have to keep fixing up! I’d also take my whole family on a great vacation. Now that all of the nieces and nephews have gotten older it is harder to get everyone together. I would love to have one week together with everyone to just laugh and play without distractions.

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?

Reading.

What is something you have learned in the last week?

Last month my family and I spent time together in a cabin on a lake. I never thought I would like the peace and quiet as much as I did. I learned that I am more outdoorsy than I thought!

What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?

Gardening. I love flower gardens. When I retire, I am going to have a huge beautiful garden!

What chore do you absolutely hate doing?

House cleaning!

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

Derek Jeter! I started to watch baseball because of him in his rookie year with the Yankees. When you would watch him play you could tell that he not only enjoyed what he was doing but he respected the game and made it through his entire career without any controversy.

What three traits define you?

Motivated, Devoted, Compassionate

Ten years ago, who did you think you would be now?

Ten years ago I knew I would still be here. That’s how much I love working for this great company.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

I would never choose a different career, but if I didn’t have to work, I would love to do something with the American Cancer Society – I have always wanted to volunteer.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?

Enjoy today because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

How do you define success?

I don’t define it by finances. Obviously you need financial stability in your life, but there must be a balance between family and work. Family is very important to me. I think anyone is successful if they can get up in the morning and be happy with what they do with their day.

What is your position at Diamond k?

My title is CFO – I do all of the office management, payroll, and finances.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Diamond K Inc., whose job would you want?

I love what I do but recently hired Lori to take over some of my previous responsibilities. I miss doing the creative side of the job. That is one of the many things that she now handles and I do miss that.

What are 3 words to describe Diamond K Inc.?

Dedicated. Courteous. Knowledgeable.

What do you find the most challenging at Diamond K Inc.?

We are a small office – I know all of the individuals within the company personally. Health insurance is the biggest challenge I face here– figuring out what’s best for the company vs. what’s best for every individual at the company. If I change something it will affect certain employees, but I must do what’s overall the best choice for the company.

What do you like most about Diamond K Inc.?

I love the people that I work with, and the day-to-day problem solving. No two days are ever the same here, which keeps things interesting!

What have you gained from working at Diamond K Inc.?

Oh my god—too much to list! The knowledge of the finance world, and the overall recycling business, how it all works. Just to sit next to David and see how everything functions within the paper industry and, in turn, the financial side of the business, has affected me immeasurably. I have loved being able to see the company grow, and the challenges that came up along the way. David taught us how to get through the tough times and what you need to do to make certain your company survives any economic situation. We have been through it all, and to do that we had to make a strong balance sheet. Because of all this, I’ve learned valuable business and financial skill sets.

What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Diamond K Inc.?

I want to see the company continue to grow even more than it already has.

What is your proudest moment at Diamond K Inc.?

I am most proud of the people we have hired. As far as I’m concerned, you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with—and I have the best of the best here. We are a family here at Diamond K—we have been together for so long, most of us for over 25 years. I am proud of the fact that the people I hire come here and stay for good.

How do you feel about working for David Kirtland?

I have had the honor of sharing an office with David for the past 35 years. I learned from the best. The amount of knowledge that he has given me is insurmountable. There is nothing more exciting than to come in every day and face different challenges and overcome them as a team. We are fortunate with what we have, because most companies become stagnant. They don’t want to learn new technology, or change things with new trends. We are the opposite. We search for challenges and continue to make certain we grow and keep up with trends, which is exactly what David taught us. He is the epitome of a great leader and role model.

I think I am more suited for behind the scenes, where others within the company are better equipped to deal with clients and customer service issues. I really don’t think I would switch with anyone!

I started out so young and grew up here, and it’s been so nice having David as a mentor and life-coach. I have really enjoyed my time working here, and we are all so tight-knit that it makes coming to work easy and enjoyable each day! We are all so lucky to have worked with David for so long. Most establishments do not have such a tight-knit team.

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

The first thing I would do is plan a huge trip for my whole family.

What is your position at Diamond k?

I am in charge of customer service, but I am really a Jack-of-all-trades – I set up trucks, move paper every day, answer questions from customers and do a lot of problem solving, anything from A to Z. I also invoice and set up the paper. David tells me what we are moving, I then tell the customer what we have, and then we move it to different locations. I am then in contact with the truckers - I let them know where the destination is, from the paper to the trucker to the customer. Really I am dealing with any issues that arise - it’s a very well rounded position.

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Diamond K Inc., whose job would you want?

Nobody’s! I love my day to day problem solving and challenges. I like where I am!

What are 3 words to describe Diamond K Inc.?

Dedicated. Family Oriented. Trustworthy.

What do you find the most challenging at Diamond K Inc.?

The work is always challenging, but that is what I love the most. I think what’s challenging is that it’s always different issues that arise that we must tackle, which is what keeps the job interesting!

What do you like most about Diamond K Inc.?

What I love most are the challenges I face daily. Making our customers happy, and making things go as smoothly as possible. Moving paper from one place to another without any complications is my main goal.

What have you gained from working at Diamond K Inc.?

What I have gained is the knowledge of paper and the many friendships I now have with my coworkers. I was a stay at home mom, and when I came in to the work atmosphere, I was able to be myself and was made to feel valuable as a person. David always taught us that no answer was the wrong answer. He always respected our answers and respected us as individuals. He pushes us to be the best version of ourselves at work. If he wasn’t here, we represented him and had to ensure we knew every answer to every question, but were able to bring our individual styles.

What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Diamond K Inc.?

I would love to see the company continue to expand and grow! I’d love us to add more in the way of what we recycle, since we strictly deal with paper right now.

What is your proudest moment at Diamond K Inc.?

There are so many! I am proud every day to solve problems for our customers and making them happy. Our teamwork here is unparalleled. We always have each other’s back. I am so proud to be part of such a tight-knit amazing team.

How do you feel about working for David Kirtland?

David has taught us so much about the paper business and to keep challenging ourselves. Never keep a customer on hold, never leave a challenge unanswered. What I love most about this job is that David always let us speak our mind, and he always has our back. He is such an easy guy to work for, never talks down to us, and always made us feel great about ourselves and the work we do.

Play an instrument. Any at all! 

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I walk a lot! I am very into physical fitness.  

What is something you learned in the last year?
I have had to learn who I am as a person, with my kids both being adults. Sometimes it’s hard to identify yourself outside of being a mother, but I think I have learned how to do that!

We are also in a bowling league and that is new and fun for me, even though I am awful! I also learned I am bad at playing darts!! Haha! 

What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
Just being with my family. Nothing in particular, but I just enjoying spending time with those I love. My niece and goddaughter has 2 young boys and I love to spend time with her and the little ones!

Ten years ago, who did you think you would be now?
Ten years ago I was working as a part-time code enforcement officer in Clarks Summit—that’s when my career first started. I guess I pictured I would still be there—I don’t usually think too far ahead. But I am so happy with where I am at now even though I didn’t necessarily think I would be here working full time! 

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I would most likely still be in code enforcement. It’s totally different, but I brought my organizational skills and positive attitude here to Diamond K, and so far it has been great! I knew Sue before we were coworkers, and had always heard great stories here from her over the years, so I was thrilled to be able to come here and be part of such a family-oriented team. 

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
Stay strong and independent. Work hard. 

How do you define success?
Being happy with where you are at in life. Making the most of your current situation no matter what. 

What is your position at Diamond k?
Whatever Sue needs me to do! Haha! The main things I am responsible for is keeping track of the e-log systems our trucks have to have, making sure all of our trucks are where they are supposed to be, and tracking  the trailers. I also backfill for anything else the team needs me to do! 

If you could switch your job with anyone else within Diamond K, whose job would you want?
No one’s!! I like mine!! 

What are 3 words to describe Diamond K?
I can do it with one - Family Oriented.  We are so close and all work so well together.  We are there for one another no matter what. We also treat our clients like family. 

What do you find the most challenging at Diamond K?
Being the new girl! I started in April and everyone else has been here so long. The hardest thing is trying to catch up to everyone with how much they know!  Most have decades of experience.

What do you like most about Diamond K?
Definitely my coworkers!!

What have you gained from working at Diamond K?
A family!!  

What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Diamond K?
I just want to keep learning more, and I want to be able to help out. I was brought on as Susann’s assistant, and I want to continue to take on more of the work load – I love to stay busy! I love helping out my coworkers and want to continue helping them progress and watch the company grow. 

What is your proudest moment at Diamond K? 
My proudest moments come from documenting more for the company – at all of our company events and special occasions I make sure to take pictures and document the fun we have. Everyone always knows I am coming with a camera! I also took over handling our LinkedIn, and love making connections on there for our company. 

How do you feel about working for David Kirtland?
David loves this company and loves everyone here. He thinks of everyone as his family and is so appreciative of all of us. It is a true pleasure to work for him! He is so knowledgeable about both the industry, this company and all of his employees, and he is very good at what he does. I am incredibly lucky to know him, and to have him as a boss.
