NEWH - Fall 2019 - 46

Q&A

MEET

Shana
McCullough-Downing
What have you found to be most valuable about your NEWH involvement, both
personally and professionally?

I have become a better version of me. Those who know me may not remember when we first
met, but I am extremely introverted and quite shy. NEWH has really helped me reach the
inner more secure and confident person I was meant to be.

Why do you recommend people get involved with NEWH?

The people. This network of professionals has been a complete joy to work with. I have met
so many people with the common goal of networking and raising money for scholarships.
I have gained friendships that I know will last for years and years. The mentors who have
coached me and guided me through my own business and personal goals are priceless.

What are you most looking forward to?

President, Sunshine Chapter
and managing partner,
DMG Florida

The Sunshine chapter's yearly fundraiser in October. This year's theme is Sunshine Derby,
based off the Kentucky Derby. I have worked on the fundraising committee for multiple
years now and we have so much fun while putting in some long hours and hard work. This
event takes us a year to put together and is always well attended with a varied group
including designers, purchasing agents, vendors, and multi-line reps who are ready to help
us raise some money for scholarships.

What would people be interested to know about your company?

DMG Florida is a multi-line rep group. We work in hospitality and food service so no day is
ever the same. We have to switch gears frequently throughout our day to best represent
our manufacturers as well as our own brand standards. We pride ourselves on being a very
diverse group, representing a diverse group of manufacturers.

Where do you find inspiration, both inside and outside the industry?

In people and in nature. People inspire me to do better, to thrive in business and to adopt my
work hard, play hard attitude. Nature reminds me that the only thing constant is change. We
can have rough seas or calm seas, but either way if you persevere through the tough times,
the smooth seas will be waiting around the corner.

When you aren't working or at an NEWH event, where can we find you?

St. Pete Beach, Florida. It is my little salty piece of land (in the great words of Jimmy
Buffett). I love being able to walk the beach, sit and read a book in the shade, and bar hop
with all the local establishments while visiting friends from all over. ❙❘❚
