Nandini Parchure - Manager, Auditor

What attracted me to Spire

There are multiple reasons I wanted to work for Spire. First, the company has a fantastic reputation. I have been a customer since 2007 and witnessed firsthand the first-class service my husband and I received whenever we had a question or needed assistance. Second, the growth of the company and the fact that it’s been a fixture in St. Louis for more than 150 years impressed me. At the same time, the company is constantly evolving and so innovative while still holding onto its history and that made me want to be a part of it.

Why I love my job

I wake up every day and get to learn a new side of our business and make a difference to improve existing processes and even establish some new ones. Internal Audit is like a navigational system—just like with GPS, we warn of accidents; tell others when there’s an opportunity to accelerate or slow down and if the path is clear. It’s incredibly rewarding to help provide direction to others and identify possible risks. Having the opportunity to partner with others and learn about their line of work continually keeps me on my toes and keeps me engaged and well-rounded.

What makes my team great

The people are amazingly friendly and leadership is accessible and connected to all the employees. It’s inspiring to be able to interact and work closely with leadership and witness executives embracing all the values and mission—they truly lead by example. Our Internal Audit team is made up of professionals from so many different backgrounds—whether it’s a hospital or a casino—we all provide different experiences and bring a wide range of ideas and perspectives to the table.
