Meet Sue Bridges, Financial Compliance Associate

Strengths (based on CliftonStrengths): Consistency, Empathy, Harmony, Positivity, Responsibility

Tell us about your current role with MTA. What are your primary responsibilities?  

My current role is financial compliance associate.  I complete transparency reports within the guidelines and documentation of client-specific processes after an event.   I also work on expense reimbursements submitted by the attendee, which are audited and approved, based on the client guidelines. 

How long have you been with MTA? 

I was originally at MTA from 2018 until 2020, then COVID-19 hit.  Thankfully, I was contacted to come back to my same position in November 2023.  I jumped at the chance since I love working at MTA.  I didn’t have to think twice. 

What do you feel are the most fulfilling aspects of your job? 

In my role, being able to provide our customers with the data they request in a timely and accurate manner is a fulfilling aspect of my job.  Also, I love the diversity of the group of people that I get to work with every day.  

What are some ways that the Finance Team takes the burden off of the client when planning an event? 

There is a lot of data and spend you have to put together between hotel rooms, meeting rooms, food and beverage, air travel, ground transportation, etc. MTA does the work of gathering this data and compiles it into a nice template to send to the customer. 

What do you do for fun? 

I especially love hanging out with family and friends.  We don’t have to be doing anything or going anywhere – just spending time together.  I also love SEC college football and the Tennessee VOLS! We have a basement dedicated to the Big Orange (Tennessee Vols)!!!! I also enjoy going to vendor craft fairs and hanging out with my fur babies. 

What makes Miller Tanner Associates stand out as a meeting planning company?

Miller Tanner Associates strives to be the very best not only in planning meetings but also in customer service.  MTA cares about the customers and the MTA employees. 

Where do you live and what do you love most about your state/city? Any must-see tourist spots?

I live in Middle Tennessee and love it!  One of my favorite places to visit is Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains. 

Why do you think that the MTA Workshops are important? What do you get most from this time together? 

It is great to meet people I work with from all over the world and get to know them more personally.  Through CSR, we also help out a community in the location where we are holding our meetings and that is so awesome for me.
