It was a privilege to work with Byron at Foote, Cone & Belding

It was my privilege to work with Byron as his Executive Assistant in his final years with Foote, Cone & Belding. We retired him with a little book and an amusing “Mayo Roast” luncheon.

He taught me a critical concept, that any blocks or problems or difficulties one came up against were opportunities for a break through to another level of thinking and operating. I call it my Mayoism when passing this immense knowledge along.

Byron also took time from our busy work with Foote Cone to assist with the publicity of my second Concord Jazz album and additionally with finding a professional (Greg Chew) to design the cover. And then when it became important for me to move to Los Angeles, he helped me to get a job with Foote, Cone & Belding Television division.

We lost touch over the years because of my constant moving and then the start of my family late in life. He is much missed and I shall never forget his amazing influence on many aspects of my life.

Thank you for everything Byron. You were so amazing and an example to all!
