As a real ‘people person’, Amanda is strongly committed to helping others succeed, as her current boss, Scott Lamb, Chief Financial Officer at ICU attests, “Amanda is considerate and thinks of others which is a good personal trait to have and contributes well to society”. Amanda also uses her knowledge and experience to mentor others, teaching them how to navigate the corporate world and where to turn for information and advice, helping to develop a healthy talent pipeline in her organisations. A key focus for Amanda is on helping those around her to succeed.
In creating a treasury organisation from the ground up, Amanda has relished the opportunity to mould the department, utilising her extensive experience. In many respects, she has been fearless in her pursuit of excellence, understanding that if you fear failure, you won’t succeed.
Amanda constantly looks for opportunities to make improvements in treasury processes. Her attention to detail is part of what has made her so successful. Amanda is proud of the role that treasury plays in supporting the life-saving mission of the company.
Outside of her day job, Amanda is dedicated to supporting her local community. Amanda volunteers with her alumni club, the University of Notre Dame Club of Orange County, working on food drives as well as student outreach and college application counselling. She takes tremendous pride in engaging with students and helping them prepare for college – particularly for those whose parents didn’t attend college, or aren’t able to provide support around their education goals.
While she has had tremendous success in building ICU’s treasury organisation from scratch, Amanda is constantly looking ahead to see what can be accomplished next. As Scott concluded:
“For the time I’ve worked with Amanda as the Head of Treasury she has outperformed my expectations. Amanda is very smart and understands the crossroads of treasury and how it interacts with the other functional areas of the company. Amanda has a bright future in the business world and I expect big accomplishments from her into the future.
Amanda cares deeply about her job and getting things done right and on time, so being able to depend on her is a huge benefit to me and the company. I believe the world needs more people like Amanda to make it a better place to live.”
We couldn’t agree more with Scott, and it is for that reason that Treasury Today is delighted to honour an accomplished professional early on in what is sure to be a stellar career. Amanda Schreiber is our Highly Commended Woman of the Year 2018.
