THROWBACK THURSDAY…

Look familiar?  This is what Country Club Plaza looked like in 1932.  This picture is part of a profile inside the KC Corporate Report in Feb. 1984.

From KC Corporate Report (now Ingram’s) 1984 February article concerning expansion of the Country Club Plaza.

EXECUTIVE’S CORNER:

Lenora Payne initially set a goal of $5 million in revenue for her start-up information technology consulting firm TGS.  Now she says it’s almost scary how much they’re growing every year hitting record returns in the hundreds of millions of dollars.  We caught up with Lenora at the Ingram’s 250 celebration earlier this month to pick her brain about what makes a strong business.
