Jim Topping became the first 100% vested retiree of the Sierra Pacific Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) and Larry Mirick, CEO and Dave Mochalski, VP of Sales presented him with his retirement check.
Jim was a consummate customer service rep — he was great on the phone, he understood the customers’ needs and he excelled at figuring out what SPEP could do to help each customer. People really appreciated his caring approach and his can do attitude.
Jim joined SPEP back in 2004 and over the course of the next 10 years he contributed greatly to Sierra Pacific’s growth. In retirement Jim plans on staying active, riding his bike, and traveling with his wife. We were lucky to have him while he was here and we thank him for all his contributions.
