I’d Heard All Kinds of Stories about the CEO
Stories like he brought a monkey to a client meeting. Proposed to his reporter wife by staging a drug bust with the Atlanta Police. And wore a tuxedo for a week when he moved to Tuxedo Road. I had just started at BrightHouse when the CEO in question, Joey Reiman, hosted a party at his home on Tuxedo Road. I had no idea what to expect. Or what to wear.
ONE LOOK AT THE INVITATION…
…and I knew this party called for a tuxedo, just like the one Joey had worn when he moved here years ago. But would spoofing his housewarming attire be an icebreaker or a deal breaker? I was willing to find out.
THE COSTUME RAISED A FEW EYEBROWS
But Joey laughed and said he’d forgotten all about it. I continued to wear a tuxedo to every Tuxedo Road party — I was well-dressed for the address, so why mess with success?
