How did you first learn about cilajet?
I was spending the afternoon with one of my ex-boss’ who was becoming a distributor for cilajet. We visited a car dealership in Newport Beach and when we left he called to tell Jaci about the appointment and mentioned to her that I had been with him in the appointment. She ask who I was and jokingly said “does she need a job”?? Well, the rest is history!
What drew you to the company?
I was drawn to cilajet because of Jaci’s passion, dedication and her ethics! You just don’t see that combination in many companies today and it was very refreshing to me. I also loved the fact that cilajet has a very “non-corporate” atmosphere which makes coming to work very enjoyable!
What is your role within the company?
I think I have the coolest job in the company and I get paid to do what I love! Make friends!
As Client Relations/Business Development Manager, I oversee daily operations in our BDC Department and provide hands on support, training and service to our agents and dealers across the United States. Cilajet believes in “Elite” Customer Service. Client relationships and client retention is of upmost importance to cilajet and I do my best to ensure that everyone that does business with us is treated with the upmost respect and all issues are taken care of with complete resolve.
What is your favorite part about working at cilajet?
Cilajet is not just a company, we are one big happy family! We have a team full of fun loving, dedicated, hardworking, and passionate people! We work hard and play harder! The atmosphere at cilajet HQ is nothing short of amazing! With music playing in the background, we get our work done as we laugh at each other all day. Our office is very upbeat and a happy place to be. (and where else can you take your dog to work?) Jaci is the most generous and giving business owner I have ever run across. She is a class act and is always thinking of us. I can honestly say that there has not been one day in the last 4 years that I have woke up and said “ Uugh, I don’t want to go to work”.
What is on your wish list for the next few years with cilajet?
I am looking forward to cilajet moving our offices to the beach, having a big corner office with a fabulous view! J
