Mary Kay Dallas Head Quarters


Picture of Mary Kay Dallas Head Quarter. People in Dallas said no visit to the Dallas area would be complete for us without visiting Mary Kay, Inc. The building used to be owned by a bank, but it sat empty for years after the savings and loan problems in the 1980s. Mary Kay took over the building and completely remodeled it for their use.




Inside, a ten-story lobby. The vertical columns line four glass-enclosed elevators.



Mary Kay, Inc. has received many awards over the years, including being listed as one of The 100 Best Companies to Work for in America (three times) and being named One of the Most Admired Corporations in America by Fortune magazine. Mary Kay Ash was named the greatest female entrepreneur in American history by Baylor University in 1994, she was named Texas woman of the century in 1999, and was voted most outstanding woman in business in the 20th century by Lifetime Television viewers in 2000. Some of these awards are shown in the display cases in the photo below.




Mary Kay was a sponsor the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards for two years, and the guitar shown in the next photo was given to Mary Kay, Inc. in 2007 by the CMA in appreciation for their sponsorship.



The Mark Kay headquarters building was previously owned by a bank, and Mary Kay, Inc. completely remodeled the building before moving into it. This Mary Kay's pink hard hat is a V-Gard manufactured by his former employer.




13th floor is Mary Kay's office.
