Hang Tran always had a hunch she would pursue a career involving numbers. A payroll assistant in MTB Mechanical’s accounting department, Hang was drawn to the field by a love of numbers.
“Math was always my favorite subject in school,” Hang says. “So when deciding what to study in college, it was easy for me to choose accounting. I know that every business needs accounting, and I could play a role.”
Joining the MTB family over a year ago, Hang received her accounting degree from UNC Charlotte in 2018. But she’s not a Charlotte native. Originally from Vietnam, Hang moved to the Queen City 10 years ago, following her uncle.
“I was attracted to the city because it was continually growing, and I figured there would be more career opportunities,” says Hang. “And I love it here. I like the weather and experiencing four seasons, just everything.”
When discussing MTB, Hang talks about its unique environment as setting it apart from other companies.
“Everyone is very friendly and professional,” Hang says. “My department works together. And the owners really care about us. I feel comfortable asking them any questions and get to learn so much from them.”
At MTB, Hang is responsible for calculating hours and wages, and updating the payroll system.
“Accuracy is the most important thing in the accounting field,” she adds. “Numbers show everything.”
Hang spent two months visiting family in Vietnam before starting her role at MTB. In addition to travel, she enjoys being outside, taking walks or hiking with friends. Crowders Mountain State Park is a favorite.
Her love of numbers also comes in handy with her other favorite pastime–cooking.
“I make a meal every day, usually Vietnamese or Chinese food,” she says.
