Highland Park Village has added a concierge to its staff, and the shopping center’s management stole her from my staff. In this newly created position, Caitlin Adams will be in charge of coordinating events, assisting clients, writing for the Village’s blog and magazine, and working as a liaison between management, tenants, and customers.
Apparently, the top brass over there became enamored with Caitlin when she was interviewing some of them for a story. Well, that’s the last time I send a friendly face to that dump. In fact, we’re about to launch a series of investigative articles exposing the dark, seedy underbelly of Highland Park Village.
Kidding, kidding. We still love you, HPV, despite your awkward acronym. We love all of your tenants. And, most of all, we love your advertising revenue. Besides, thanks to his new position with the Republican National Committee, I’m pretty sure Ray Washburne could have me killed any time he wants.
As they say, every time a door closes, a window opens. Caitlin’s departure has allowed me to add another Highland Park High School graduate to our staff. The lovely and talented Margaux Anbouba joined the team this week, upping our Scots total to three. (The others are Elizabeth Ygartua and Dorothy Wood.) It’s nothing like the old days, when I believe 10 of the original 12 employees of Park Cities People were Highland Park alums, but I’ll take it.
