Last week, Kaplow staff gathered to celebrate the 90th birthday of Sylvia Miller, more commonly known around the office as “Mrs. M.” Seasoned singer and opera performer, Ryan Lathan, arrived with flowers for Mrs. M and performed “The Song is You” from Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s Music in the Air. During the sweet serenade, Mrs. M asked the singer, “Where were you 40 years ago?” making the whole crowd chuckle. After a heartwarming and humorous speech from Kaplow CFO Evan Jacobs, the group enjoyed a lovely luncheon.
“In all my 70 years of working, I have never met the head of a company so considerate of his employees,” Mrs. M. remarked. “Evan and Liz [Kaplow] are very caring, concerned and in constant touch with their staff.”
And who wouldn’t want to bathe Mrs. M in affection? The New York native is known for dispensing fashion, beauty and relationship advice, brightening the Tuesdays and Thursdays of each Kaplow employee, “even on the off-Thursdays!” jokes account executive Megan Cross.
