Franca’s Autobiography, Project Manager, The Office Shop

My name is Franca Greto and I am in the sales department here at The Office Shop. I am excited to share a bit about myself to help you get to know me a more personal level.

I studied at Ryerson University and Humber College. I didn’t always want to be in sales, in fact, my dream as a child was to work on-air as either a TV or radio host. Hosting seemed like a great job for a funny gal like me. Seemingly life took me in a different direction and alas, I found sales and I couldn’t be happier where I am! I am very dedicated to my time and take so much pride in providing my customers with the best possible service. I am deeply passionate about my work, so let me guide you through my typical workday: I am an early bird as I wake up each day between 4 and 6 before I head to work. As I mentioned, I’m in sales, which I have been doing for 20 years and I love working with The Office Shop. After working a full day, I head home to my husband and 14 year old daughter for family dinner. After dinner, we head over to my daughter’s hockey practice, the girl can really skate! No day of mine is complete without chatting with my friends and family, reading a bit, and ending the day with a little bit of reality TV. My days are usually jam-packed, but I have so much love for my job and my family.

As soon as it is safe to travel, I’ll be booking my first flight! That’s all that I want to do. I love it and my goal is to see as many places around the world as I possibly can in my lifetime. First stop, you may ask: lying on a beach in Italy with my family. A fun fact about me is I’m a huge foodie! My friends and I are always on the hunt for new restaurants. We are constantly checking out new places to enjoy a wonderful meal together and catch up.

Discovering a new place to eat is the perfect addition to a movie night with my husband. As a mother, a wife, a sister, and a friend, prioritizing those closest to me is of the utmost importance. Each person in my life holds a special place in my heart. Those who recognize my loyalty and value me are the most important to me. Having a daughter who is an only child is truly inspiring for me. She is a strong, independent, driven, and confident young woman, and I just could not be more proud of who she is and the woman she is becoming. I admire her dearly.

I am the type of person who is dedicated to everything in my life which is why I just cannot wait until I can get back into the office with all of my coworkers. They’re the best, even when they know I’m being a pain in the butt! I am looking forward to being back and joking around in the office when this is all over, and of course, seeing all of our wonderful customers. My work, family, and friends always take priority in my life. So, as I eagerly look towards a safe future when we all return to our new normal, I urge you all to stay strong during this difficult time – we really are in this together.
