Our Staff at Irving / Farmers Branch Express

  • Mari Alba
    Office Manager

    Mari Alba has been with Express Employment Professionals since August 2008, which is when she met Mike and Arie Overby and began her career in the staffing industry. Mari started working for Express as an On-Site Manager, then took on a Staffing Consultant role with no prior experience. After 6 years, Mari was promoted from Staffing Consultant to Office Manager, but she continues to recruit and place with a passion. Mari treats her office like her 2nd home, so that when her candidates walk in, they feel “right at home”. Her applicants describe her office as “cozy and welcoming” which Mari says is the first part of the process - making her applicants feel at ease. Mari’s co-workers describe her as organized, with a great memory, and a work-a-holic, all of which are qualities that make Mari the excellent Manager and Recruiter she is. Her greatest accomplishments happen every day when she is able to place the right candidate with one of her clients and her greatest satisfaction comes from building her clients trust when they know that the candidates she sends their way will become valuable assets to their companies. Mari wakes up every day and thinks, “Today is the day to bring the bread to someone’s table”.

    Mari was born in Dallas, TX and grew up in the heart of Dallas. She graduated with High Honors and received a Medical Office Assistant Certification but never pursued a career in the medical field. Instead, she dedicated 10 years to the Mortgage / Real Estate industry before making the change over to Staffing. Mari’s time outside of work is family time. She’s the oldest sister to 6 siblings, 4 sisters and 2 brothers, and mother to 10 children. Mari is grateful to her parents for all the love and support she and her siblings received, for making sure they all spoke Spanish and never forgot their roots, because being bilingual would help them in the long-run, and for being the reason she has become the successful woman she is today.
