Two pink Cadillacs for Mary Kay mom and daughter

Sales achievements qualify mother and daughter for firm's iconic cars

In honor of their business achievements, Carol Taylor of Concord and her daughter Amber Olsen of Dublin have each earned the use of an exclusive Mary Kay pink Cadillac, a coveted incentive awarded by Mary Kay.

The new Cadillacs come in pearlized pink, a color unique to the Mary Kay Career Car program.

As star performers in the independent sales force, Taylor and Olsen both picked the Cadillac CTS, one of several models independent sales directors can choose. Qualified sales directors also have the option of selecting cash compensation in lieu of the car.

The company said that more than 7,300 Mary Kay independent sales force members have qualified for career cars, with more than 1,400 of those being pink Cadillacs.

Since the program's inception in 1969, more than 120,000 independent sales force members have either qualified or re-qualified to earn the use of a Mary Kay career car.

"The Career Car Program provides the independent sales force the opportunity to earn the use of a visible symbol of success," said Darrell Overcash, president of Mary Kay Inc. U.S. "The coveted pink Cadillac is the ultimate, most recognizable symbol of achievement."

Taylor began her Mary Kay business as an Independent beauty consultant in 1976 and Olsen began in 2004. Taylor became an Independent sales director in 1981 and Olsen in 2006.
