New Manager for SMB Post Office

| 22/10/2008

(CNS): The new district manager of the Seven Mile Beach (SMB) Post OfficeMartena Villalobos, who willbe responsible for managing that facility’s daily activities and everything that entails, as well as liaising with customers and supervising seven staff members. However, Villalobos says she welcomes the challenge.

“Just knowing that I am manager of the fourth-largest post office on these islands fills me with pride. My greatest satisfaction comes when a customer walks inside to mail a letter; knowing that I am part of the team that will ensure that that piece of mail arrives safely, gives me such a good feeling,” she said.

Promising that the excellent service that Seven Mile Beach Post Office customers have come to expect will continue, Villalobos said, “Nothing’s carved in stone, so I will listen to suggestions that have the potential for us to do even better.”

In previous years Ms Villalobos has worked in several capacities, chiefly in the hospitality sector. Formerly a human resources manager at the Reef Resort, she also did a stint with the Postal Service—where she was Savannah’s District Manager.

Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow said, “Managing the Seven Mile Post Office will certainly keep Ms Villalobos busy, given the facility’s volume of customers and mail. But I am sure she’s up to it and will be a positive addition there.

Growing up in East End, one of Villalobos’ childhood responsibilities was collecting mail. That sparked her interest in the postal service because, as she explained, her father, Thomas Carter, was a seaman.

“Mail was our only method of communicating in those days, and receiving a letter from my dad always filled our household with such pleasure. I want to extend that same feeling to today’s customers,” she said.
