A Milestone Apart

By Hilary Kaye

Some milestones go by unnoticed. To be quite honest, this is usually my preference. Yes, I know, we often urge clients to step out and grab the limelight when they achieve milestones. It’s good for morale and good for business. But you’re more likely to find me, and HKA, behind the scenes, making things happen.

That said, I feel compelled to point out that 30 years has passed since we opened our doors. First, we were Stern & Kaye. Then Hilary Kaye & Associates. Then Hilary Kaye Associates. Finally, simply, HKA, Inc. Marketing Communications.

Doesn’t matter what we’re called, the fact remains we have turned out very good work for 30 years, right here in OC. But we didn’t do this in isolation. Along with our usually excellent employees, we have had usually terrific clients. I add usually to both just to cover the occasional times when things were neither excellent nor terrific. It happens.

Philanthropy has always been part of our fabric -- donating time, giving money and helping where we could. But this year we are kicking it up a notch, creating something very special – an item from my personal business bucket list.

In honor and recognition of our 30 years, we’ve created Locally PRoud. One very deserving nonprofit is going to be part of our 31st year. We are going to enjoy the process of selecting the winning nonprofit in 2014 and certainly will gain personal satisfaction from providing our services at no cost in 2015.

Some milestones just have to be noted.
