Kim Stempel

Vice President - Sales

"As a high school science geek, I wanted to go into medical research. After spending several years in college and graduate school doing research into all hours of the nights (cells need to be fed after all), I decided to take a 180 degree turn and study the family business - banking. This led me to Nortridge Software. In research, I missed the contact and interaction with people. Now I am fortunate to work for a great company with a superior product and help solve real world business problems."

Kim got her first experience in banking and finance years ago when she spent her summers working the drive-thru window at an Illinois bank. Today, in her role as vice president, sales and business development for Nortridge Software, she is responsible for the sales team as well as forming key business partnerships and relationships. Since joining the team, Kim has seen years of exponential growth in Nortridge. The analytical skills she developed during many years in a research lab give Kim the ability to look at clients' needs and help them use NLS in a way that improves their business processes.

Kim studied business at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she earned an MBA in investment banking. She also holds a bachelor's degree in biology from Northern Illinois University, and studied molecular virology at the University of Chicago and Washington University in St. Louis.

Originally from Freeport, Ill., Kim now lives in San Rafael, Calif. When she isn't telling potential clients and partners how NLS can help improve their business, she enjoys tennis, golf, skiing and traveling with her husband, Terry, and their family.
