Business Person Of The Year

Eileen Dolan, Business Person of the Year

While working in her full time career as a Registered Nurse in ICU, Eileen Dolan was offered the opportunity to have a home based business with Mary Kay, Inc.  It made sense to start this business due to her love of the products and her entrepreneurial spirit. She started off as an Independent Skin Care Consultant and three years later advanced to the position of Independent Sales Director, representing the top 2% of the Company.
During her years as a MK Sales Director she has earned the use of 15 career cars translating into 28 years of driving for free. She has led her sales unit of part time consultants to over $300,000 in sales for the year.
In 1986 she moved to the Village of Floral Park and joined the Chamber of Commerce. She immediately got involved and participated on the original “Merchant’s Day” committee (now known as the Belmont Stakes Festival and Street Fair). Eileen has been active on many committees since then. The Scholarship Committee was one of her favorites, as it showcases ideas for the future of our Village through the essays written by the children of our local schools.  
Eileen served as an Officer on the Chamber Board in the capacity of Recording Secretary for several years. She has tirelessly worked behind the scenes in more ways than we could possibly mention.  Eileen has been a reliable and essential active member for her entire tenure with the chamber. She has offered many new ideas to support the chamber and continues to be dedicated to making the village a better place to work and live.
Eileen has been married to Stephen for 36 years and has two children, Jack and Julie Dolan.  She enjoys volunteering as a Nurse in St. Anne’s Respite Program.
