Becky HolcombeFeatured Member for March 2018

Team Lead, P-Card and Expense Reports

Southern Company Services 

An obvious choice for our first featured member is Becky Holcombe. Permit us a moment of nostalgiaBecky was present at the first NAPCP advisory meeting held in Atlanta in December 1999. The meeting was the first time the concept of the NAPCP was presented to the industry. Becky was an early advocate and cheerleader.

Eighteen years later, Becky is still an advocate for the industry. She began her program in 1994 with 80 cards. The program has grown to over 20,500 cards. During her tenure, Becky has survived four provider conversions, consolidation, an acquisition, multiple expense reporting system changes, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) controls and annual audits! She was a popular and highly rated speaker at the 2017 annual conference where her topic was Level 3 Data Review. Another topic Becky is passionate about is the use of Purchasing Card during disaster recovery.   

Becky Holcombe is a team Leader with Southern Company Services overseeing the P-Card program and the auditing of expense reports to ensure compliance. She also performs continuous monitoring of all reports by use of keywords and Level 3 data review. She has been employed with Southern Company for 40 years. Becky has been on the NAPCP Member committee and participated in developing the CPCP exam. She has been a Certified Purchasing Card Professional since its inception. Becky has presented at several accounting and Purchasing Card conferences on various topics including: the Use of a Purchasing Card During a Disaster Without Losing Control of Your Policies, Controlled Purchasing Card Chaos During a Consolidation, How to Effectively Manage a 15,000+ Purchasing Card Program and Level 3 Data, and You Thought You Couldn’t Get Caught.

 

Meet Becky at the conferenceshe’s facilitating a roundtable on Level 3 data review. NAPCP end-user members who would like to connect with Becky, feel free via our member directoryRead more about Becky in the interview below: 

 

1. Achievement Becky is most proud of: The achievement that I am most proud of is assisting storm crews. When a disaster strikes and power is out, getting power back on as quickly as possible is critical. Adding the P-Card as a part of our company storm disaster plan, working with our P-Card provider to eliminate declines and ensuring that the card works whenever, however, and for as much money as they need has been a true work in progress. Our storm crews are recognized around the country and even now in Puerto Rico. This makes me proud to know that I am a part of this.

2. Becky’s current challenge: The biggest challenge that I have is not enough time!

3. Fun fact: I have six grandsons (no granddaughters) ranging in age from 2 to 21. When the P-Card business was in its infancy, not as many people attended the conferences. My 21-year-old grandson was not yet in school, so he would usually go to the conferences with us. He has grown up with the P-Card business and is much more knowledgeable about credit cards and fraud than his 21-year-old friends.
