Note from Jim Kincer: Bob was a sales representative in Lexington for K. David Robertson in the early 1970's during the same time  I worked there, along with Skip Winfree, Jim McCubbin, Ed Tuggle, George Hodgson, Bob Black, Ray Kemp, Glenn Baugh and Dick Rudzik.

Here is what Bob had to say when I first contacted him:

"OMG!  You can't imagine how often I think of Lexington, Xerox and the people I had the opportunity to work with. My success was the experience of being exposed to men and women who were very skilled, intelligent and it certainly helped me....I used all that I ever learned from those people in my future endeavors". 


"All news about Xerox people is interesting to read.  My memory is still very strong and I can think back to many things which happened while at Xerox.....It was a good experience and I had a great opportunity to work with great people such as you and the other Lexington ASO people"!  


"I learned more from my Xerox days than anywhere else I worked.  PSS (Professional Selling Skills) is still engrained in my mind!!  I have used these skills many times since I left Xerox in sales and non-sales positions". 

"My greatest memory of you is when we (the team) created the movie (16MM!!), "The Day in the Life of a Xerox Salesman".  As I think about it now, for its time it was rather "edgy".  I am surprised we were allowed to even show it at the annual Regional Meeting".


"My Ft. Lauderdale training and association with the quality people at Xerox gave me the tools to spend twenty successful years with the Quaker Oats Company in Danville, Illinois".  

"I finished my working career at The Quaker Oats Company cereal manufacturing plant in Danville, Illinois as a production supervisor.  It was mostly a great place to work!!!  I retired soon after it was sold PepsiCo"!  

"The sale of Quaker brand to PepsiCo was fortuitous for me as I had been purchasing Quaker stock through the 401-K program for twenty years and the sale reaped a really nice escalation of stock values which continued to improve until my retirement!  Work became history...I thought.  I have been retired for over 14 years now and as much as I thought retirement might be slow and boring, I find it to be anything but".  

"Soon after I left Quaker, I secured a teaching certificate to be a substitute teacher, to keep me busy.  I spent twelve years doing just that and, for the most part, loved every minute of it.  Many times I rued the initial direction of my college education toward business, when in fact, my real success could possibly have been as a teacher.  I enjoyed it immensely...even the less than happy parts when discipline was necessary".   
  
"So, all in all, I have no real regrets with where life has taken us. Sandi and I have lived a good life and do the things that we want to do!  We live in Georgetown, IL, celebrated our 54th wedding anniversary this year, have four fantastic grandchildren and a two-year-old great-granddaughter.  We both have good health and I will take good health over anything else just about any day of the week"!


"Xerox was a fantastic company and the experience with them resulted in many extended excellent careers".   Bob Mahoney

CAREER
Derby 1976
My Xerox career began in September 1972. Apparently, persistence landed me the job as the first female Sales Representative to work in the Louisville Branch.  In 1986, after fourteen years, I left Xerox to become a Sales Manager for a local office supply and furniture company and became the Direct Sales Manager for Cellular One in 1987,  In 1990 relocated to Sacramento as their Major Account Marketing Manager.


In 1992, I was fortunate to return to Xerox, in Louisville, as an Outsourcing Sales Rep under George Hodgson, who was then General Manager.  I had a total of twenty years with Xerox before I retired in February of 1998.


WEDDING BELLS
Coincidently, in January 1998, I married Roy Whayne of Whayne Supply Company, one of my accounts at the time.  We were very happily married until August of 2007, when he passed away.

FAMILY
My two grown daughters are happily married and I am a proud Grandmother of five.  Caroline, my oldest is 8 years old, twins Ryan and Reid are 6, Hank is 3 and Hayden is almost 2.

INTEREST'S
Most of my time is spent tending to my grandchildren, whom I adore.  I am in a book club, a bridge club, on the Ballet Board, on the Holy Trinity School Board, and involved with Home of the Innocents.  I wrote a book entitled “A Grandmother’s Lullaby”, which you can view on my web site (agrandmotherslullaby.com).

I am surprised how often I find myself thinking back remembering the “good old days at Xerox,” and wondering what everyone is doing today. I tried calling the branch several years ago to see if anyone was still there that I knew. After being told by the receptionist again and again “never heard of that person” I finally said just give me the oldest person there. That’s when Marilyn Becht answered the phone. (Only kidding)  But that was what I told Marilyn when she answered. I can’t tell you what she told me to do with the phone.

1977
I started with Xerox in 1974 when Mark Eisner was the branch manager on Breckinridge Lane. Roy Goldblatt got me the interview with Ron Hoffman, against his better judgment, hired me. In 1978, after being declined by Bill Allen and Dick Snyder, Kodak offered me the job of opening their first branch in Kentucky. Shortly thereafter I convinced Kodak management to go out on a limb and hire Roy Goldblatt. I moved to Atlanta with Kodak in 1985. Our division was sold to Danka in 1997. In 2000 I went to Lexmark International till November of 2010 when I got a separation package.  My trophy wife Vallerie was with Bell South and AT&T from 1978 till she took a separation package in 2009.

Jim 2006
I left for a brief 2 years to sell hospital computer systems for Shared Medical Systems with Oscar Wiygul who left Xerox earlier and was a branch manager for Sperry Univac. He recruited me and we moved to Houston. Almost 3 years later they shut down the Energy Branch of Sperry. Oscar moved to Washington D.C and I spent almost 3 years with a computer firm (PSI Energy Software) based in Calgary Canada, serving the Houston energy market. They went bankrupt and I went back into the financial world (pre Xerox I was a banker at 1st National Bk. of Louisville). 

In Sept. 1986 I started working for Shearson Lehman Bros.(retired on July 31, 2010), Shearson Lehman has merged and changed names many times, now known as Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. I have officed in the Houston Galleria and had the same phone number for 24 yrs.  I retired this year, July 31, 2010. 

Janice and I have been married for 50 years. Our children are as follows: Vicky Constantine (husband Jerry) live in Louisville they have a daughter Nicole and she has a daughter Bria 7yrs old (our best great granddaughter), Jimmy McCubbin, Jr. (wife Susan) lives within 3 miles of our home in Houston. 3 children, Tanya 23 yrs of age student at Univ. of Houston, Jimmy III 22 yrs of age student at Houston Community College, and Jarrod 20 yrs of age student Texas A/M.  Gene McCubbin (wife Stacy) lives within about 9 miles from us in Houston. They also have 3 children Jarron 20 yrs old student at Houston Baptist University, Jordan 17 year old High School Jr. and Jonathan 13 year old 6th grade student in Houston.


I have ridden in the annual Houston Rodeo Trailride (about 45 miles) every year for the past 16 yrs. and I have discovered snow skiing in my old age (started at age 60) and I ski with my son Gene and his 3 sons every year since then.  

I consider myself extremely lucky to have the family and many friends I have gathered over these many years.
