Where are HU grads today?
Jamon Hammel, 2013 Accounting Graduate
While a student at HU, Jamon Hammel found success both on the baseball field and in the business department. He appreciated that all of his business professors were genuine people who went above and beyond to ensure that students maximized their potential.
“The business department sets a high bar for performance and demands that students commit to mastering both technical skills and soft skills,” he said. “My classmates embraced the challenge throughout our four years together, and we continuously challenged one another to perform at a high level.”
After graduating in 2013, he relocated to Roanoke, Indiana, and began working in public accounting. After two years, he knew he wanted to transition to work in the private industry, and he began searching out opportunities for a new career.
“While meeting with Parkview Health representatives at a job fair, I met someone with close ties to HU,” he said. “This person knows that HU graduates are well-positioned for success in the workplace as a result of their HU education and experiences. This connection helped to open the door for me, and for this I am very thankful! Parkview is the premier employer in the region with a tremendous reputation for caring for its employees, so I felt compelled to pursue a job with Parkview.”
He now serves as the finance manager for the primary care service line of Parkview Physicians Group (PPG). He analyses the financial performance of family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine and walk-in-clinic practices. He supports physicians and operational leaders in identifying opportunities for improvement, including exploring the financial viability of various growth initiatives.
