Mary Jane's journey into the world of hospitality began at Old Edwards Inn and Spa, where a bottle of complimentary champagne sparked her passion for customer service. She excelled academically, managing tennis teams while pursuing Business and Marketing Communications at Ole Miss. Little did she know that her initial dream of a corporate job would evolve into a fulfilling career in luxury resorts.
Meanwhile, Nanci's journey started in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she worked at a travel agency to support her education. Guiding retired army officers and their spouses on a European adventure left an indelible mark on her heart. Together with her husband Jimmy, they ventured into entrepreneurship, founding their own agency, and embracing thrilling experiences along the way.
Years later, destiny brought Mary Jane and Nanci together to form a dynamic duo. After successful careers in resort sales and the travel industry, they recognized the natural harmony of working with family. In 2015, seizing an opportunity, Nanci founded Reilly Resorts Representatives, drawing upon her customer service expertise and extensive knowledge of unique destinations.
With her passion for the industry, Mary Jane joined her mother as a co-owner, injecting fresh ideas and innovative approaches to drive the company forward. United by a shared vision, their partnership flourished as they combined experience, innovation, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.
Today, Reilly Resorts Representatives (RRR) stands as one of the USA's premier luxury resort and hotel representatives, thanks to Nanci's visionary leadership and Mary Jane's dedication. Their relentless pursuit of growth and partnership development has led RRR to unprecedented success.
As a testament to her commitment to the industry, Mary Jane also serves on the Site Southeast Chapter board, passionately introducing young minds to the world of hospitality. Their journey together proves that life's unexpected turns can lead to the most fulfilling and rewarding paths.
