Here at Miller Marine, we have some truly amazing staff members who make it possible for us to provide high-quality service, stay involved in our community, and offer a selection of hundreds of fishing boats and pontoons to our customers. One of the staff members who helps make all of this possible is Dana Hinkemeyer.
Meet Dana Hinkemeyer, Miller Marine Accountant
Dana joined Miller Marine back before there was a dedicated marine division. The year was 1990, and we were operating out of our location in downtown St. Cloud. In those early years, there was a tiny bit of marine work, but the majority of Dana's work revolved around automobiles.
She's been with the company throughout our move to our current location, and over the last five years, she's had a front-row seat (and an important role) as Miller Marine has grown and evolved.
Working for Miller Marine
As our accountant, Dana offers all sorts of marine support. She takes care of general accounting, paperwork needs, bill paying, inventory, and everything that has to do with purchasing and contracts. Spring through mid-autumn is our busy season, and Dana stays very busy processing lots of deals and purchase orders - above all of her regular job duties. She enjoys the annual Minneapolis Boat show, preparation, the environment, and looks forward to the "kick-off" event to start the boating season.
Even during the "off season", Dana spends much of her time preparing inventories for the new models that start coming in throughout the fall and winter months. To hear Dana tell it, "There's always something to do."
A Dedicated Team Member
Dana operates as an important member of the Miller Marine team. When I asked her about the individuals she works with day-to-day, she had plenty of kind words about the sales, finance, parts, and service staff.
"You cannot believe how much everybody knows the industry around here. That's a big part of what makes us so successful. We have quite a few salespeople with repeat customers, and they're great with new customers too. Everybody's fun to work with - I've gotten to know all of them pretty well. I've attended their weddings and other functions outside of work. It's a great team."
Outside Working Hours
When she's not working, Dana fits in plenty of outdoor recreation. She's a golfer and a runner, and her entire family is involved with baseball. She lives with her husband in Cold Spring, MN and they have two grown sons. For going on 27 years, Dana has time and time again been impressed with how flexible and good of a company Miller Marine is to work for.
Thank you, Dana, for all you do!
