Call for Delahaye Alumni Notes

Calling all Delahaysians!

Delahaysians with Al Gore 250The Delahaye Group was founded in 1986 and for 15 years was an innovator in public relations and social media measurement. Roughly 80 people were employees of that firm at one time or another, and many of them have gone on to found their own companies, lead other companies or research divisions, and, overall, do great things in measurement and life in general.

Katie Delahaye Paine founded The Delahaye Group, and then, ten years ago, founded KDPaine & Partners, the company that puts out this newsletter. As part of KDPaine & Partners’ 10th anniversary celebration we are checking in with those back-in-the-day employees of The Delahaye Group to see what they are up to.

So, if you were employed in any fashion at all by The Delahaye Group, we invite you to submit brief updates of about 100 words. What are you doing now? Where has your life taken you since The Delahaye Group? Please let us know. Just click here and dash off a quick email. Photos of you and the kids on vacation are also welcome.


And, just to get things started, here is Lisa Binzel (an 11-year Delahaye employee, who ended up a VP) and her husband Bill enjoying an afternoon in Napa Valley. She writes:

“Check your alumni records… I may be the only one of Katie’s employees that married a client!  I was *that* committed to client service!  J 

Attached is a photo of our recent trip to Napa Valley.  Weekend excursions to Napa became the hallmark of my quarterly trips to Silicon Valley when I was with Delahaye. After a week of presentations to the likes of Epson, Cisco, Intuit and others … I needed a break!”
Thank you Lisa. We look forward to hearing from many more Delahaysians. –WTP
