After what Colebrook CFO Jim Bishop referred to as “a five-and-a-half-year interview process” Maria Stublarec has joined Colebrook’s accounting area. Since 2012, Maria has been on lease from a local accounting firm on a part-time basis, and when Colebrook’s needs increased, she was asked to become a full-time employee. In addition to working on financial statements and banking relationships, Maria will be involved in the administration and funding of Colebrook’s timeshare clients.
A native of Middletown, Maria earned a degree in Computer Science from Bay Path University in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. For approximately ten years, she worked in insurance sales, before transitioning to accounting in the mid-1990s. An accountant with a sales personality fits right in with Colebrook’s emphasis on customer service.
Maria lives in Rockfall, Connecticut with her husband Steve and two children, Zack and Zoe. One of her toughest negotiating points when joining Colebrook was that she had sufficient time to watch Connecticut College soccer games. Zoe, a sophomore, is a center midfielder for the Camels after a stellar prep career at Choate/Rosemary Hall.
A happy, long-term timeshare owner, Colebrook represented Maria’s first exposure to the business aspects of the industry. “I’m looking forward to learning a lot more about it,” she said, “and to meeting and working with Colebrook’s customers and bankers.”
