Maria Samad

CHAIRPERSON

3 Things About Maria: Gemini – Lived in Greece in a Past Life – One of the best home cooks ever!!

 

Once called the ‘Tiger’ of the insurance industry, Maria changed her tune and reinvented herself as one of the plant rental industry’s leaders, with very little experience, a lot of common sense and a great deal of gusto!

 

While plants were in her blood, having many family members in the plant retailing industry, Maria never fully explored her family legacy until acquiring her first plant rental & maintenance company. Since then, she has used her plethora of managerial experience to grow the business and the brand from strength to strength helping lead it from purely a rental company to a hub for rentals, retailing and recently launched wellness centre.

 

Officially retired, Maria, an unofficial workaholic, still returns to the shop for a few hours everyday to get her daily dose of natural chlorophyll and vitamin D and to help keep her youthful outlook on life!

Zidane Marfan

SALES | OPERATIONS

3 Things About Zidane:  Crazy for Tostitos – Even crazier for Cricket – The ‘next’ Brian Lara but with a green thumb

 

Zidane at first has a quiet and helpful disposition, as the main face of the sales floor at Rain Tree Plant & Wellness. But once you get to know him, you will realize that he appreciates the grace and wonder of Mother Nature and is always up for a good laugh.

A ‘new’ member to the team, and relatively young, Zidane nevertheless lends his experience to his position with a sense of calm and zen.
