Rufus & Dixie & Nuala
From the very beginning, the canine team has played a very important role.
Rufus Dessar heads up the welcome committee greeting every visitor with his friendly smile, he also takes his role as chief food taster very seriously and would never want us to eat anything before he has checked it …. the only problem is when he does check we don’t get any!
Rufus is a great source of comfort during times of stress and as a very strong swimmer would be sure to save us if there was a flood … or should that be would be sure to save his ball!!
Dixie Dessar brings new excitement to the team and she has now taken over the position of chief of security from Andy who we sadly lost earlier this year at the ripe old age of 17 years old…. he will be missed but never forgotten.
Together they bring a happiness to the rest of us making sure that even in times of stress we have something to smile about.
Nuala joined the optimum team when her mum Sarah joined as head of the London office. She graduated from Law school in California with her mum where she won the award of “Best Master of Laws Pet” at the graduation event in 2016. Nuala now works full time with the London office, and with her love of eating out at some of London’s best restaurants and travelling to fabulous destinations, she is a great asset to the team! Her main job is making sure that she makes an appearance to say “hello” in most zoom calls as well as providing constant cuddles and daily entertainment. She also prides herself on being a connoisseur of smoked salmon (very important for all Jewish events!) and can often be spotted having a quick office break and a smoked salmon bagel at Panzers Deli. She is currently enjoying her weekly zoom meetings with her colleague Dixie in the Global Office, who is teaching her all there is to know about being a canine member of the optimum team.
