Operations Manager, Neeta Lakhani, is perhaps the most harassed person on the team and yet somehow, she remains quick to laugh and keeps a cool, calm and collected demeanor at all times. We need to find someone who plays the didgeridoo for a sponsor’s party? Ask Neeta. We need a cigar roller, a break dancer, a drum line (remember the drum line?!), an Elvis impersonator that is also an officiant and a trained manicurist? Ask Neeta! And she’s got to field all of our (admittedly, sometimes ridiculous) requests while also making sure we’re all served the delicious daily breakfasts, lunches and sweet treats we’ve come to expect. Not to mention making sure the doors are open and the lights are on. I’m not kidding. Without Neeta, we might be locked out of the damn building! So as you’re “mmmm mmmmm mmmm’ing” over your food each day, say a silent “thank you” to Neeta. Better yet, if you see her walking around the halls of COUTURE, say “thank you” to her face!
