People of DecoArt: Kristy
Posted by DecoArt on Mar 5th 2020
Kristy has been at DecoArt for 15 years, first starting as a third-shift international operator meaning that she worked with our products that are shipped worldwide. Then, after working as a mailing assistant and moving to 2nd shift, she was promoted to International Team Lead. During this time, Kristy started pursuing her business degree to create a better future for her and her daughter. DecoArt appreciates, acknowledges, and invests in talented employees to be able to promote from within, and in 2015, Kristy was promoted to her current role as Sales Service Representative.
In her current role, Kristy handles domestic distributor and retailer accounts by communicating with their representatives to be sure we have mutually beneficial relationships with all our partners. Her major areas of responsibility are with JoAnns, Notions, and our Social Artworking Canvas Painting Party Program. She manages their orders and assures the stores always have what they need to flourish with our products.
Kristy loves that she's able to travel to trade shows to meet the people that she's developed relationships with over the years through email and over the phone. Kristy is the only Social Artworking representative so she works with all our consultants around the country and world. These consultants throw painting parties and host classes with our canvas painting designs.
Kristy wants everyone to know that "we're a small, family-based company [140 employees] that takes pride in our products." Her favorite memory is when her DecoArt coworkers threw her a surprise birthday party, which was the first surprise birthday she has been thrown.
