Bay Copy of Rockland today honored Vice President of Sales Sharon Mutrie, a 35-year veteran of the company, as she prepares to retire.
Ray Belanger, CEO of Bay Copy, recalled that she had been recognized by national trade industry magazine ENX in 2021 as a “Difference Maker,” an award bestowed upon industry leaders who excel at what they do.
“That’s a really appropriate description of Sharon’s career here,” Belanger said. “She has made a huge difference in the growth of Bay Copy and has been one of our greatest ambassadors both inside the company and outside in the community.”
He credited Mutrie with playing a key role in winning a five-year contract for Managed Print Services (MPS) with one of the state’s larger regional healthcare facilities. Mutrie oversaw the sale and the on-site installations of 500 units, which included rigid safety protocols because the work occurred during the COVID-19 outbreak. “Sharon understands our business through and through and is very skilled at anticipating, understanding and responding to customers’ needs,” he said. “It’s one of the reasons she is consistently such a top performer.”
Mutrie has been with Bay Copy for nearly 35 years, beginning her career as a sales trainee. She has been promoted numerous times over the years. With her extensive knowledge of sales/sales management, she has been recognized repeatedly at a national level as the top in her industry.
She has served as president of the board of South Shore Habitat of Humanity in Weymouth and is the former chair of the board of directors for Fontbonne Academy in Milton. She has also served in many various roles for the South Shore Chamber of Commerce in Rockland, including as a member of the chamber’s Women Business Network and Athena Mentoring Program.
The Bridgewater resident received a degree in Criminal Psychology from the University of Maine.
“It’s been an honor to be a part of the Bay Copy team and work with so many great clients,” said Mutrie. “I am leaving an amazing team and I am confident they will continue on in the same great tradition.”
“Sharon is a big part of the history of our company, having come to us when Bay Copy was only 15 years old,” said Belanger. “As sorry as we are to see her go, and we will miss her greatly, we wish her all the best in retirement and are profoundly grateful for her loyalty, contribution and friendship. She has been a tremendous partner through these years; and we all look forward to staying in touch in the months and years ahead.”
