Dedicated, Experienced New Encore Leadership Shares the Mission
February 3rd, 2014
With more than 17 years of experience at DLC, newly named Encore Manger, Kim Mayeu, has a rare insider’s view of the critical needs of the Center and the importance of Encore’s fundraising success and support back to the Center’s programs. After former CEO David Schimmel’s retirement, she transferred to her new position after serving as his long-time executive assistant and most recently as an Administrative Supervisor. Ready to apply her growth as a supervisor and put her recently attained MBA to work, she’s hit the ground running since volunteering to help spearhead the renovations and expansions over the summer.
Kim’s dedication to customer service, passion for our mission, knowledge of the Center’s programs and operations and ability to motivate customers, donors and volunteers makes her an amazing asset at Encore.
Kim works diligently alongside a wonderful team of staff and volunteers including local upscale resale boutique guru, Karen Balazano, who came out of retirement this summer to lend her expertise to Encore as we migrated from consignment to donations and launched our women’s boutique. Her 15-year tenure with the Options Thrift Shoppe, helped bring their sales from $120,000 to over $1 million a year.
Our newest team member Amy Mlinar has valuable experience in quality customer service and is applying her love of women’s fashion and beauty as a seasoned hairstylist to the store. Her contagious personality exudes the type of positivity and friendliness that we are proud to have representing the David Lawrence Center.
Stop by and make a donation of women’s designer accessories and apparel or call to arrange complimentary pick up of your gently used home goods/furnishings, meet the friendly, passionate team and walk out with something new to support the mission of DLC.
