The mere fact that Tammy Knurek administers payroll makes her a VIP among staff at Paragon Properties. But that’s not the only reason she’s so special. A dedicated professional who coordinates benefits enrollment, on boards new hires, and works closely with Regional Managers whenever a challenge arises, Tammy also knows “the face and name of every single person” who works at Paragon Properties--quite a feat for a company of this size. And that in-depth knowledge fuels her passion for the work she does. “I love interacting with employees and being an advocate for them,” she says. Tammy also takes inspiration from the top. “Justin Dunckel is a good listener, approachable and gives employees a voice. He allows you to do your job independently and autonomously without micromanagement. I love that about his leadership,” she says. In her spare time, Tammy enjoys golfing, bowling, baking, exercising and gardening. But what she loves most of all is spending time with her two grown sons, friends and family.
