New Richmond Utilities welcomes new employee

Nancy Petersen

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Nancy Petersen who started working for New Richmond Utilities on October 15, 2002 as our Finance and Accounting Manager.

Nancy and her significant other, Randy Schwark, moved to Hammond this May and live on a small hobby farm with their cat BoJe.

Nancy graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting.

Immediately after college Nancy worked for two years in public accounting where she prepared individual, partnership, corporate, and non-profit tax returns and performed compilation, review and audit engagements.

From there Nancy began a career in the private sector as assistant controller for MSP Communications, a magazine publishing firm located in Minneapolis. After a little over a year she was promoted to Controller. In January of 2001 Nancy was asked to head up the accounting department for ComputerUser.com Inc. where she was in charge of overseeing all financial, credit and collection operations of the company.

We are pleased to welcome Nancy to our family here at New Richmond Utilities.
