We’re sad to pass along news that our good friend Maria will be leaving her full time position at Beekman 1802 at the end of the month to spend more time with her family. Maria was literally “Beekman 1802 Employee #1,” and as far as we’re concerned, it’s an honorary position the she can never really resign.
We know she’ll continue to be a part of Beekman 1802 and Sharon Springs events in the future. (She is, afterall, the founder of the Victorian Christmas Celebration.) There are very few people in the world who can handle working at a fast-growing start-up company, and Maria thrived under incredible pressure and a bright spotlight.
We hope that she enjoys a little downtime, and comes back to help as often as she wishes.
Back when we worked in the city, whenever someone in our offices was leaving, someone would send around a card for everyone to sign. There aren’t that many people in our Beekman 1802 office, but there are thousands of you out there who have been touched by Maria’s contributions to Beekman 1802 and the community.
So please “sign our card” by leaving a comment below wishing Maria all the best and maybe sharing your favorite Maria story if you have one. This way she can come back to this page whenever she needs a little pick-me-up.
Thank you Maria!!!!!!!!
