renata.gifRenata Keran turns 19 today, in company years. My relationship with Renata has been one of the most enduring of my life.

There were the awkward early years, navigating her second job (we headhunted Renata from a client), the messy years (dancing on the bar at Senates, being carried up the stairs to the bath…), the family years, 21st, engagement, wedding (350 guests!!!!) and the homemaker years (houses, houses and houses). Many wonderful memories, not one of which I would change.

Renata does more to carry forward the heart and soul of this company than anyone. She is our parent, conscience and our mother confessor.

Happy Birthday Renata. My life is the richer for knowing you.
