IMAX is lucky to have a rep force full of energetic and interesting people. It’s true! Each rep has their own story to tell of what makes them who they are. To help you get to know our sales team a little better, we decided to feature a rep each month right here on our blog.
We would like to introduce you to Cindy MacIver, our February rep of the month!
We’ve asked Cindy a few questions, and posted her answers below. After you get to know her, if you like Cindy as much as we do (and we know you will), be sure to say “hi” in the comments section below the post.
How long have you worked with your sales group?
I have been with the Bianci group for 10 years and counting.

Complete the following statement: I got into repping because…
… I used to own a home and gift store and then sold it, but I wanted to stay in the industry. I always wanted to rep. Best job ever!
What do you like most about your job?
My customers, they are my friends that I enjoy working with everyday! I love helping them be successful and watching their businesses grow!
What do you like least about your job?
The last day of a show, everybody starts leaving.
What is your favorite stress releaser? i.e. At the end of a long road trip, long day, long market or tough sales month?
Spending time with my grand kids… at Disneyland!
You travel on the road and to markets – what is your favorite travel tip that you would like to share?
Pack light, bring comfortable shoes (love Dansko).
Fill in the blanks: When I go to market I always, look to see what the weather will be like, but I never seem to be prepared when it rains. I wish I could be in two places at once – Atlanta and Dallas in January.
What are some of your best retailers doing to be successful?
Using social media, like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter… and ordering IMAX!
What are retailers in your area asking for?
Specials! They love our monthly specials. Also, new product and quick shipping, which IMAX does well.
What is the funniest or most interesting thing a customer has ever said to you?
A lot of my customers have mascots at their stores – cats, dogs etc, which I love! I’m a big animal person. The most interesting one had a pet sheep. She brought it to the store every day!
If you could have any position, career or job, what would it be?
My husband asked me that question once and only once. I told him I have it! I could not image myself anywhere else.
Name something on your bucket list.
Tell us about your children/family/pets.
I have been married for 32 years to my high school sweetheart, have three grown boys, and a dog named Sofie (she is so cute). I also have 3 beautiful grand kids – Colin is four-years-old, Kadence is two-years-old, Tyler is eight months, and a new one is due this summer, Chloe May (right around the Dallas show). We just found out today it’s a girl! I love spoiling them!
