Rita Krause

Mary Kay Independent Sales Director Rita Krause of Great Bend has earned the use of the exclusive Mary Kay pink Cadillac, an iconic symbol of success, the most coveted incentive awarded by Mary Kay.
Krause took delivery of the new pearlized pink Cadillac XT5 crossover, her 16th Mary Kay career car, at Dove’s Cadillac Dealership in Great Bend. Mary Kay independent sales force members earn the use of a pink Cadillac by meeting and exceeding goals set within their Mary Kay businesses.
Krause began her Mary Kay business as an Independent Beauty Consultant in 1980 and as a direct result of her accomplishments, became an Independent Sales Director in 1989. As an Independent Sales Director, she chooses to provide education, leadership and motivation to other Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants and offers her customers high-quality Mary Kay® products.
“With each new Mary Kay car I’ve earned, it’s reminded me of the wonderful opportunity we have to work for a company that provides such great rewards,” said Krause. “Our Mary Kay prizes and awards are a symbol of how many customers and consultants we have helped along the way. We have a great support system within our organization which is focused on empowering and assisting women. Local consultants, Brenda Friess and Joanne Wondra’s teams also contributed to our Unit’s honors this past year. The only thing better than earning your own Mary Kay car is helping someone else earn theirs! The Krause area has had directors earn the Black BMW and the Chevy Cruze in 2016. “Thank you”, Mary Kay!”
The Career Car Program also includes the Chevy Equinox crossover in black, Ford Fusion in black and Chevy Cruze in white.
“Cars earned by the independent sales force through this exciting program serve as a symbol of their hard-work and success in their Mary Kay businesses, and the pink Cadillac is the ultimate, most recognizable symbol of achievement,” said Darrell Overcash, president of Mary Kay Inc. U.S. “For 50 years, Mary Kay has continued to provide a rewarding opportunity selling irresistible products, changing the lives of women around the world.”
Since the Career Car Program’s inception in 1969, more than 144,000 independent sales force members have qualified or re-qualified to earn the use of a Mary Kay career car. Currently, 6,032 Mary Kay career cars are on the road nationwide with approximately 1,318 of those being the coveted Mary Kay pink Cadillac.
