â€œMIA is very pleased to welcome Cathy to our staff,â€ stated Garis F. Distelhorst, MIA Executive Vice President. â€œHer strong background in service and sales -- combined with her interpersonal skills, team spirit and integrity -- gives MIA increased capability and responsiveness as we continue to grow in size and stature and expand our influence upon the design and construction communities.â€
â€œI was delighted to join the MIA team because I have long admired the beauty and craftsmanship of products and buildings from the stone industry,â€ said Mayer. â€œI consider it an honor to now assist the companies who have chosen to become members of the Marble Institute.
â€œI enjoy working closely with people to help them get the optimum savings, service and information that is available to them within our industry,â€ Mayer continued. â€œI 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.â€
Before joining MIA, Mayer was the Sales Representative/Inside Sales Manager at NACSCORP in Oberlin, OH, an association for the college bookstore industry. She also worked in sales at Westlake, OH-based C&K Manufacturing and Sales, a food processing and distribution company.
