This letter is to highly recommend Margot Hird. Margot started working for me on a part time basis in 1989 when we were an infant company with just myself, my assistant and one other person. First she got us up and running on a computerized accounting system, and from there was a key player in the growth of the company, moving on to production accounting, corporate accounting, financing procurement, forecasting, etc. For three years in a row she spearheaded the writing of our company business plan, which in 1997 resulted in a $5 million dollar investment from the top investment banking firm on Wall Street. When Margot left, the accounting department, which she had built and been managing, had grown to six people, and the entire company to over 200 employees. Today GRB is Discovery Channel's largest supplier of programming, and GRB programming is seen in over 70 countries worldwide.
When Margot made the decision to pursue her own business ambitions, there was genuine sadness at the company. She became like family to us over the years and is greatly missed today. She would be an asset to any organization that brought her on, and we at GRB wish her nothing but the best.
