DR. GLORIA MAYFIELD BANKS, described by many as “energy in motion,” is a woman of many accomplishments. She has a Harvard MBA and an honorary doctorate from the University of Maryland–Eastern Shore and is a renowned motivational success strategist, a multimillionaire entrepreneur, and a Mary Kay Independent Elite Executive National Sales Director.
Growing up in a loving family in Detroit, Michigan, Gloria was the third of four girls born to parents who were both educators. At an early age, Gloria’s parents discovered she struggled with reading, which was later diagnosed as dyslexia. Despite the challenge, Gloria never considered dyslexia a handicap, just another obstacle to overcome. Gloria graduated from Howard University and began her career as a sales representative for IBM. She later joined Stratus Technologies as a manufacturing marketing manager and went on to become assistant director of admissions at the Harvard University School of Business, where she traveled nationally and internationally to recruit students. Gloria has since counseled and encouraged victims of domestic violence and lobbied in Washington, DC, as an advocate for domestic violence prevention.
Faced with being a single mother and dealing with a difficult divorce, Gloria began her Mary Kay business to supplement her income. Within eighteen months, she set new company sales records and later grew her business to more than $24 million in area retail sales and an area of more than six thousand Independent Beauty Consultants. Her record-breaking ascent to Independent Elite Executive National Sales Director was faster than anyone in the company’s fifty-year U.S. history. Gloria is one of only three women in the United States to become a Mary Kay Independent Elite Executive National Sales Director.
Today, she has expanded her entrepreneurial influence to include not only her record-breaking Mary Kay business, but also her co-ownership of a marketing, product, and promotional events company. She is happily married to her husband, Ken, and they share four adult children and three grandchildren and reside in Baltimore, Maryland.
