Congratulations again, Evan! When you're a really big deal after your time at Darden, I'll still haze you lovingly, just to keep you humble when you're the CEO of something large.

Charles is not only a master of the gmat, ladies and gents. He’s also a master at sucking up — life lesson, kids: sucking up gets you places.

Charles and bb, you both will have a space open at my company any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Nepotism be damned!
