Welcome Kyle Sawyer To The Caravus Team!
We’re pleased to introduce you to our new administrative coordinator, Kyle Sawyer!
Kyle’s role with us is multi-faceted. As administrative coordinator, he’s involved with the day-to-day office operations, including being the first person to greet office visitors at the door. His main role, however, is processing eligibility-related requests from our clients, including enrollments, terminations or changes. By taking “extensive notes and logging everything”, Kyle is taking his new role in stride.
“I feel like I fit in perfectly with this company. There is such a strong work environment that promotes growth and encourages change… I was looking for a company that had the same philosophy that I do: Always ask why and always ask how,” he said. “I feel like we all have a great habit of asking ourselves why we do what we do and how we can do it better. That’s the best way, in my opinion, to make sure our clients are getting exactly what they need.”
Time management is essential in Kyle’s role and one he’s honed over the years, starting with his time in the restaurant industry. Prior to joining our team, he was a verification issue resolution specialist with a benefit plan administrator where his tasks included financial analysis of variable income to optimize government subsidies received by consumers, and verification of citizenship and immigration status of consumers to confirm insurance eligibility.
Managing Partner J.J. Flotken believes Kyle’s past experience in the benefits industry makes him a great fit for Caravus.
“Kyle is already familiar with the industry and his ability to step right into this role has been outstanding,” said J.J. “We’re happy to have him as part of our team.”
On a Personal Note
Kyle is a native of St. Charles, Mo., and he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in December 2014 from University of Missouri-St. Louis, where he majored in Spanish, and minored in French and General Business Administration. Kyle is also a fairly recent newlywed, having gotten married last September.
In his free time, Kyle volunteers at a local organization that helps women facing a pregnancy crisis. His grandmother served as the group’s director throughout his life, which led to his involvement.
“It’s an organization that I’ve always worked with closely to help provide baby supplies and help out with charitable events in order to raise money,” Kyle said. “I have also helped out with translation on occasion since they have a growing Spanish-speaking client base.”
Writing is another interest of Kyle’s but it’s hard to work it in sometimes.
“I love to write, but I can almost never seem to find the time for it,” he said. “Whenever I get the chance, I’m usually playing video games to kill time. I love playing games that stimulate my mind and make me think.”
