Loretta Macleod — A Legend Retires
Loretta Macleod started work as receptionist at Foord & Meintjes in October 1981 as Foord’s first employee. The team of three worked from offices at Market House in Greenmarket Square before their move to Pinelands.
By all accounts, Loretta arrived before Dave Foord (who was serving a restraint) and also before the furniture. She then became part of the furniture - a familiar and welcoming face to investors and colleagues for the next 39 years.
An avid traveller, Loretta plans to expand her adventurer’s footprint in retirement when the pandemic abates. We expect that she has already packed her passport. Loretta, thank you for your loyalty, commitment and friendship over the past four decades. We will toast you with your favourite glass of bubbly and a fitting farewell when we finally can. Bon voyage.
