Special Plate and Announcement

DRUM ROLLLLLLLLLLL…….my hubba hubba husband is now El Capitan of The Natori Company (also know as President). For some readers, you might think OBVI, he is the son, so of course, he is President. But that is not the case. Ken never thought he was going to work for his mother and set out to make a name for himself. He was a TV and radio broadcaster at Bloomberg for 5 years (Ken Natori, What’s the story?), then went to Stanford Business School (near-perfect GMAT scores), worked at Lehman Brothers for several years (left before the crash), and then joined the family business in 2007. I am proud of my husband for working hard, committing to what he believes in, being a diligent and thoughtful worker, and at the same time as being the smartest person I have ever met (other than my brother and father —  they all tie for first place). So now, a new era of new life for the Natori business, and I am proud and in awe of my husband’s dedication, drive, and talents. So to celebrate, I got him this plate (this is not a joke).

  1. Congrats Ken! You are special! As a lifelong owner of the you are special plate, welcome to the club. And prepare yourself for the family competition over that plate.

    • Thanks Gigs. I have been waiting my whole life to do something that warranted receiving a special plate. It’s quite emotional.

    • Thanks, Jenn! (Although I have done nothing to help his promotion, but have every ounce of faith in his ability and talent!)

  2. Congratulations Ken!!! I suspect this is pretty overwhelming, not just the promotion and swell of pride, but that special red plate being given to you. Enjoy the moment!

    • Thanks, Fiona! The plate is going to be fun for a long time, and it is even more special that it was first for Ken’s big special day!

  3. Congratulations to the Prez… So do this make you the First J. G.?
    Ohh..love the plate..must get one for the girls…

    • Fab: my good friend, Gigs is a twin and she had this plate growing up. She said one of the girls (her or her sister) would get it for the dinner, and the other for dessert! They had it their whole twin life! I am so excited about this plate!!!! (and excited for Ken, too, obvi, but more so the plate).

  4. Congratulations, Mr. President! Nice write-up in WWD — mentioning the Josie Girl! Love to all.
