Andy Helton Named New Accounting Services Director

Andy Helton was named Accounting Services Director on October 2. He brings a variety of skills and a strong background in accounting to the position. He started college at Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) before transferring to Maryville University where he graduated with his Bachelor of Science Accounting. After graduating he found himself working in the corporate world for 17 years. His first accounting job was at Mohela where he started as a staff accountant before leaving as Assistant Controller after working there for 13 years. He then worked for 4 years at BYK Healthcare before leaving the company to work at MBCH.

Andy and his wife, Wendy, are both members of Ridgecrest Baptist Church in Saint Charles where they have been attending for 20 years. Andy is very active in the church and serves as a deacon and Finance Committee chairman. He has taught 5th and 6th graders in their youth center, Zone56, for several years. He has also led the church’s Upward Soccer program for the last 3 years.

Andy has always felt like he had been called to go into ministry. “Since I became a Christian, I have always wanted to go into ministry and I felt like this was a great opportunity,” Andy Helton commented.

Andy is replacing Rich Haacke, who is retiring at the end of the year after more than 23 years at MBCH. “Rich has been very committed and dedicated to his job and to the agency,” Russell Martin said. “We have been very blessed to have him here. He has incorporated the corporate restructuring into the accounting system effectively and efficiently through his leadership in the accounting department. He has been a good steward of our resources and he has been committed to the mission of the agency. When there is an audit of any kind he made sure that everything was provided in a timely, efficient manner. Every ‘I’ is dotted and every ‘T’ is crossed. He made internal control and accountability a priority. This is evidenced by the unqualified audits we have received for the past several years.”
