There is big news on the horizon for 2015 Design Star Beth O’Reilly as she steps into a new role and becomes an official Mayesh employee. That’s right, Mayesh just didn’t want to let her go so they offered her a job that she couldn’t refuse. She calls it her “Dream Job!”
You will still see Beth from time to time as she promotes Awesome Blossoms but she will also head up her own accounts in the Sales Division of Mayesh at our LAX location. So you may ask, what makes this a dream job? Well we asked Beth and here is what she said, “This move into wholesale felt so right, and with a company like Mayesh supporting me, the sky is the limit. I can now devote my energy to helping the people that make this business what it is; the hard working, salt-of-the-earth florist and flower shop owners. I’ve been in their shoes and I know just what makes their lives easier when it comes to flower ordering and what to expect from their wholesaler.” Beth says that she will still pursue her passion for creative design but she cannot wait to learn another aspect of this great industry; building even more relationships with floral artists around the nation. The beauty of her position at LAX is that she will have the opportunity to work with all kinds of people as this is the hub of the shipping division. She adds, “As a Mayesh customer for many years myself, I saw first-hand the problem-solving abilities and services that Mayesh provides so I know just what we are capable of.”
You will also see Beth dabbling in some of our marketing efforts. Right out of the gate, Beth will design our Special Events 2016 booth in Orlando, Florida this January 13-14th. She is starting the year out with a bang and we are so excited to have her on board. Beth explains that the position couldn’t have come at a better time, as she had just made the decision to be closer to home (which is now Los Angeles) and forego her product development trips to China, explaining, “There comes a time in life when family is more important than anything and the Mayesh position is helping me spend more time at home with my husband and son. Also Mayesh is so special to me because it is built on family. When I was chosen as the Mayesh Design Star it felt like home for a reason. The people that work here truly care about you and it’s definitely a place where I will be proud to call home for many years to come.”
Yes indeed. We are just as excited to have Beth as an official Mayesh team member starting January 4th. What a grand collaboration we anticipate it will be. Please stay tuned as Beth goes from monthly design inspirations to a daily journey towards the epitome of perfection with Mayesh Awesome Blossoms.
