Sam Kenyon, HR, is this month's Upstate 'Face'

April 2007—Sam Kenyon

For 21 years, Sam Kenyon has provided quality customer service to the employees of Upstate Medical University as a member of the Payroll Services Department. In his current role as a Payroll Specialist, Sam is responsible for interpreting complex payroll rules and regulations governing the processing of State payroll. Sam takes great pride in his work and serves as a key source of knowledge in responding to the numerous payroll related inquiries. This might explain why Sam has been nominated for Campus Employee of the Year on several occasions. When asked, “What do you enjoy most about your job?” Sam responded, “I like the wide range of people that I get to deal with from co-workers and customers to the auditors at the Office of the State Comptroller.” On his own time, Sam is a loyal Yankees and Giants fan, and his favorite pastimes are exercising, playing golf and taking his dog, Barron, for walks. When asked, “What do you want people to know about you?” Sam responded,“I have a good sense of humor and for the most part I am always in a good mood. I’m also amazed that I have a son in college.” By the way, his son’s name is Sam and he attends SUNY Oswego.

Sam, you are appreciated for all you do for others and your superb customer skills and positive approach to your job!
