For Mango Monday we would like to introduce our new and awesome Government Sales Manager, Jane Potee. Jane has recently moved to permanently experience Pure Michigan and join the Mango Team.
Get an inside scoop at what it’s like to work at Mango Languages and get to know Jane through this Q&A.
Q: How did you find out about Mango Languages?
A: I met Drew Kelly, Mango’s Operations Manager, at the Kentucky Public Library Association back last April. I was working for an audio book vendor at the time, and was very impressed (and a bit jealous) of the gracious and enthusiastic customer interaction that was happening at the Mango exhibit. I met Ryan Colpaert, Mango’s Sales Director, and Drew again at the Air Force Navy Librarians Workshop in June of last year. When I heard that Mango was looking for a Government Sales Manager I was very interested. I pursued Ryan, Drew, and the recruitment process at Mango. I heard they interviewed over 30 people – and with my experience at a former Medical Library, combined with my past experience as a Government, Corporate, and Medical Library Sales Manager for a large International subscription agent, I was so thrilled that I made the final cut.
Q: What is your favorite part about working at Mango Languages?
A: I love the people and the core values that Mango is founded on:
Everyday, we WORK hard at Mango and we Play hard too. We make sure the Language Learning experience is fun and memorable in the process.
Q: Which language/s would you like to learn? why?
A: I want to learn Hebrew. I took German and French in High School and College, but way back in my family lineage I have relatives that were of Jewish heritage from Russia.
Q: What do you like most about the Mango courses?
A: You can learn at your own pace. That is important to me because I love to GO FAST, but when it comes to learning a new language sometimes I have to pace myself during the learning experience to make the outcome optimum in retention and understanding.
Q: What’s a fun and/or interesting fact about you?
A: On my 50th birthday, I enrolled in Mach1 Race School and drove 6 laps at 150 mph at the Michigan International Speedway. Just like Mango- Life, Love, and Laughter all along the way!
That’s so cool Jane! Thank you so much for sharing that with us. We are so happy to have you here at Mango Languages.
There you have it folks, a car-racing, language-loving, great Government Sales Manager. That’s just one example of the diverse and unique staff here at Mango Languages. :-)
