Back in February, I reported on Brand New School’s outstanding new-year-in-progress… day by day, 2011 keeps on looking up. In the human resources department, BNS founder Jonathan Notaro and his colleagues welcomed Delores Hively — a nominee for this year’s Los Angeles Business Journal “Women Making a Difference” Award — to their LA staff in March as West Coast representative and for new business development. April saw the return of “golden child” Dennis Go to the NYC staff as director and design director, followed by Flame artist and lead compositor Blake Huber’s return in May.
