She has been sponsored by Document Solutions and joined the Sales division in April 2013, as Education & Government sales representative. She started her career in print and document management solutions, working for Konica Minolta Business Solutions, UK.

Mary will answer some quirky questions so we can get a better insight to one of our Sales Experts:
Q. Tell me a little about your personal life – are you married, children? Etc
A. I have been married to my wonderful husband Jay for 13 years, we have a daughter and son.
Q. How did you become a Salesperson?
A. It was by pure chance to be honest. Pervious to working in sales, I was trained as a professional make-up artist. I spent most of my career working away from home. Although I had some great contracts, I missed my family so I decided to find a regular job working for a magazine, selling advertising. That’s where it all started.
Q. How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
A. Reliable, Loyal and Honest. I feel I am all of these three words, in the work place and in my home life.
Q. What is something about you that nobody here at Docsol knows?
A. In an earlier career, I was a professional make-up artist to the stage dancers of ‘The Moulin Rouge’, Paris.
Q. What is the best thing since sliced bread?
A. Wi-Fi and my TomTom, I would be lost without them both.
Q. What is the best trip you have taken – where and why?
A. Thailand 15 years ago, I had the most amazing travelling experience, travelling from island to island and danced in the sea at full moon parties. It was a time of freedom and a time I fell in love with my now husband.
Q. If you won 1 million dollars, how would you spend it?
A. I would see to it my Mom would have whatever her heart desired. As long as my Mom didn’t spend all of the money, I would enjoy a round the world trip with family and friends.
Q. Name five famous people (dead or alive) that you would invite to your dinner party.
A. I would love to invite Elvis Presley, he was a first love of mine way back when I was a young girl. Sat to my other side would be the very talented Bette Midler. She is funny and I would look forward to hearing her singing some of her greatest hits whilst we enjoyed desert. She might even duo with Elvis! I would also invite funny man, Mickey Flanagan. He is an East End London comedian (Very Funny) and a perfect addition to a lively dinner party, everyone would love him. I would also like to include, Bubbles the chimpanzee for a little chaos. Bubbles was previously owned by Michael Jackson, who is not invited. My final guest would have to be, Robert De Niro. I admire him as an actor and I believe he is an all-round, Good Fellow!
Q. Are you a dog or cat person?
A. Most definitely a dog person, I love the intimacy and loyalty a dog can give you.
Q. If money and time was not an obstacle, what would you do with your life?
A. Honestly, money has never been an obstacle, as I believe the best things in life are free. However there are times, I wish I could hold back time, if only to make the good times last a little longer.
