Employee Spotlight May 2017

Business Consumer Alliance’s Employee of the Month for May is Nicole Pitts. 

  • Position: Senior Business Practice Analyst/Editor
  • Years of service: 15 years this year (started in 2002)
  • Hobbies: Cooking, reading and doing puzzles
  • Favorite Activities: Listening to music, watching thrillers, and spending time with my family. 
  • Most fulfilling part about working for BCA: “Being able to have some part in helping others. Promoting the great services we offer and giving that little something extra that sets us apart. I love hearing success stories when we are able to help solve a problem & working with some great people.”

Kim Burge, Vice President of Operations, has this to say about Nikki:

“Nikki is instrumental in promoting our services by writing articles in our reports, Business Link, our website and social media sites. The articles she writes warns the public about scams, new trends, laws, and how to recoup loss if a government action was filed against a company among many other things. For example, she wrote an article about consumers who were scammed through Western Union. We alerted the public about a huge settlement where they paid out $586 million. They received 550,000 complaints which they ignored about phony transactions such as lottery and prize shams, dating schemes and advance fee loans. This article increased our visibility on Facebook when they like us or make comments.  One customer reached out to us and filed a complaint. Although he did not get his money back, he was impressed with our  organization and is going to help spread the word about us. Nikki is always thinking about pitching our services. She will help a customer and Facebook with a complaint or general advice. When she finds out they are a business, she lets them know how they can benefit of our membership services. She is always offering her assistance on the web program and other office work we receive. She is a team player. Congratulations.”

Continue to keep up the great work, Nikki, and thank you for your commitment to the BCA family.
