A well known public relations firm, Bright Light Marketing, will be shutting its doors in Bishop Square in mid-December after 21 years in business, according to its owner, Lynette Lo Tom.
Tom said she will be embarking on a new journey – taking a new path in her life.
She’ll go from helping her clients look good to making food taste appealing. She is hoping to teach and take cooking classes and write a cook book. She may also explore pop up restaurants.
In an interview with Hawaii Reporter, Tom said she did not consider selling the firm. She is working to ensure support staff secure other jobs and that her staff who work in client services and want to open their own firms, can continue working with their existing clients.
Tom will also continue working with her clients, but will reduce the time she spends on public relations.
“Who knows how many more adventures I may have in me?” Tom said.
