In the first segment of our Meet the Team campaign we would like to introduce you to Marta Arango.
Marta Arango was born in Havana, Cuba and migrated to the United States in 1960 with her family. She graduated from high school in bustling New York City and shortly thereafter was married. She gave birth to her daughter Janet at the age of 20 and her son Joel at the age of 23. In 1971, Marta and her family moved to Florida after the grand opening of Disney World. Before joining the Leland team in October of 2005, she spent 15 years in the banking industry and another 15 years in accounts payable at a major automobile dealership.
Today Marta is the proud grandmother of 3 beautiful grandchildren and 1 great- grandchild. She lives with her cat Bernadette and her Shitzu Maggie. She loves sweets, crafting, and high heels. Always creative, Marta spends her leisure time creating festive decorations and hopes to one day have her own crafting business. When asked what her strongest contribution to the Leland team is she cited the quality of her work and takes pride in her attention to detail. Jessica Barton, Manager of Assessments & Billing, says “Marta is a great asset to the Leland Team, she is willing to assist with all sorts of tasks even outside of her own responsibilities. Her work is always free and clear of errors because she is so diligent and ensures the accuracy of each task.” Marta says being named Leland Super Star of the month in May 2010 is one of her fondest memories in her tenure with the company.
We look forward to sharing our team member’s stories with you. Please check back next week for the next installment of Meet the Team.
