Partners in Play: Q&A With Richard Gill & Catherine McMillen Gill BY MARY COUZIN

Richard Gill is VP international at PlayMonster and Catherine McMillen Gill is the president of McGill Associates. Catherine and Richard epitomize the title of this new series, Partners in Play. They have been my dear friends for a long time and are generous, fun-loving, smart, connected, tres chic and more. And, anyone who knows Catherine knows she LOVES taking photos. At the time it can be annoying (sorry, Catherine), but over time one is quite glad she took those photos. She sent me about 20 to choose from for this profile and it was sweet to remember many of the occasions they were taken. Enjoy getting to know them!

Mary Couzin: Who does what? Do you divide the turf, take turns, or is it more like a game of Twister? Richard and Catherine: We both have our strengths and lean on each other throughout our daily activities. Now that we work separately… the turf has to be divided with an invisible wall between our offices, but that’s no ‘Trouble’!
