Mary Kay Independent Sales Director Athena Frangos-Pasley of Greenwood, has earned the use of a new Chevy Equinox crossover as a result of her outstanding achievements in her Mary Kay business.

Frangos-Pasley will take delivery of the new Chevy Equinox Crossover, her eighth Mary Kay career car, at Smith Chevrolet, Fort Smith, Arkansas. Mary Kay independent sales force members earn the use of a career car by meeting and exceeding goals set within their Mary Kay businesses.

Frangos-Pasley began her Mary Kay business as an Independent Beauty Consultant in 1999, and as a direct result of her accomplishments, became an Independent Sales Director in 2001. As an Independent Sales Director, she chooses to provide education, leadership and motivation to other Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants and offers her customers high-quality Mary Kay® products.

"I am thankful that I am part of a great company that rewards hard work with a brand new car. My husband is enthusiastic about my business, too. He doesn’t have to make a car payment or buy tires," said Frangos-Pasley. "I am also thankful for my team members. Teamwork is the fuel that allows common people to achieve uncommon results."

The Career Car Program includes the Chevy Equinox crossover in black, Chevy Cruze in white, Toyota Camry in black, BMW320i in black and the iconic and coveted pearlized pink Cadillac.

"Cars earned by the independent sales force through this exciting program serve as a symbol of their hard-work and success in their Mary Kay businesses," said Darrell Overcash, president of Mary Kay Inc. U.S. "For 50 years, Mary Kay has continued to provide a rewarding opportunity selling irresistible products, changing the lives of women around the world."

Since the Career Car Program’s inception in 1969, more than 144,000 independent sales force members have qualified or re-qualified to earn the use of a Mary Kay career car. Currently, 6,032 Mary Kay career cars are on the road nationwide.
