Several members of the SCORE Charlotte chapter received glowing praise from The Mecklenburg Times including Client Intake Coordinators Robert Kunkle, Michael Harris, Andrew Swanson, Michael Marks, Chip Breeden, and Chapter Chair Barbara Brill.
"The first contact of a new potential SCORE Charlotte client seeking assistance in opening or expanding a business or general guidance is normally made by one of five dedicated members of the organization’s Intake Team.
Headed by Robert “Bob” Kunkle, Vice President of SCORE Charlotte and head of the Intake Team, the team maximizes the chapter’s responsiveness by matching a potential client’s needs with the qualifications of one of SCORE Charlotte’s 72 volunteers, half of whom work full-time. Kunkle has been a member of the team since he joined SCORE Charlotte in 2016.
Normally, a potential SCORE Client needs assistance in opening or expanding a business or just needs to talk to a volunteer to make sure he or she is headed in the right direction. After an initial meeting, a plan of action for the client is determined.
According to Barbara Brill, SCORE Charlotte President, in 2022 the five Intake Team members commitment and expertise was the first step in the Chapter providing 5,345 hours of unique team member mentoring sessions that resulted in the creation of 688 new jobs within the 14 North Carolina and three South Carolina counties the organization represents.*
For their efforts, dedication and many hours of service, Intake Team members were honored by SCORE Charlotte for their collective commitment to excellence in serving the large volume of mentor requests with professionalism and compassion. The awards were presented at the organization’s recent annual awards meeting and banquet in Charlotte, NC. "
