The Marble Institute of America, Inc. (MIA) announced the appointment of Cathy Mayer as its new Membership Director. Mayer, who has more than 12 years of experience in sales and customer service, will coordinate membership acquisition and recruitment campaigns for the international natural stone association and assist in delivering exceptional service to its more than 1,200 members worldwide.

“MIA is very pleased to welcome Cathy to our staff,” stated Garis F.

“I enjoy working closely with people to help them get the optimum savings, service and information that is available to them within our industry,” Mayer continued. “I plan to work diligently to provide MIA members with the most up-to-date information from MIA and help them represent their companies within the stone industry.”
