Greg Kunde, procurement compliance specialist in Procurement and Vendor Services, will be retiring after serving Boise State for 17 years. Kunde started as a compliance specialist in 2006 and has also worked as the backup P-Card administrator.
“I have worked with Greg for 13 and a half years. Greg is always pleasant and good-humored. His innate kindness always come through when assisting customers or co-workers,” said Julie Parke, P-Card administrator. “As we have worked more closely over the years and I have gotten to know him better, I am always delighted by his special way of diffusing a situation. Greg is able to say just the right thing with humor and understanding that leads to calm and success for the other party,”
Kunde created and taught ‘Purchasing 101’ for many years before the course was moved to a self-paced, online format. The course has been a valuable training tool for campus. Kunde was also Boise State’s gift and award expert.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Boise State and worked with some wonderful people across campus. I do know there are great people in University Financial Services and they have a good vision of how they want to best serve campus,” said Kunde.
“It has been a privilege to work and get to know Greg over the past few years. Greg’s professionalism, knowledge, team orientedness and respect for others will not only be missed by Procurement and Vendor Services, but by so many others across the university. I know his future schedule is already starting to fill up with family time and chasing golf balls. Thanks Greg, you will be missed,” said Eric Knothe, director of Procurement and Vendor Services.
“Greg has been an integral member of the Procurement and Vendor Services team, not only for his expertise and knowledge but for his kindness and welcoming demeanor. I am grateful for his friendship and his guidance along the way. Cheers to many hole-in-ones and quality time with friends and family. Enjoy this new chapter and don’t forget to wave when you walk past my house,” said Kristen King, procurement operations manager.
