My Million Dollar Garrison
"I say a Million Dollar Garrison because that, ultimately, was the total amount of money spent by my 2nd best Client while selling Porsches for a Los Angeles based Dealer in early part of this century. My Black Garrison Briefcase had been my travel and work companion for years. I kept it in a discreet place next to my desk and not visible to the public. However one afternoon I had my Garrison on my desk while looking for some documents I needed. At that same time, a Gentleman entered the showroom and I greeted him at once. After answering a few general questions, the Gentleman commented on my Garrison and how he was an owner of several Ghurka leather goods. Our conversation went from fast cars to adventures we had experienced with our respective Ghurka pieces. Months later, after having lost my business card, the Gentleman reached out to the Dealership to place an order for a Carrera GT. He regretted losing the card but wanted to speak with the Salesman who owned the Ghurka Briefcase. We reconnected and years of the Gentleman purchasing several high end sports cars with me began. The Ghurka brand doesn't just create memories for you, it creates memories for the people who see you with Ghurka."

Better Than the Boss
"I've always believed in the axiom that one should dress not just like their boss, but one level higher.
Almost thirty years ago, I was just finishing MBA School. My boss had a broken in soft leather two handle brief bag, but the CEO carried a well worn Ghurka bag.
For a graduation present, I asked my parents to get me The Expediter. It was a brilliant move that served me well. I used that bag hard for over a decade and then had it refurbished and went on for many more years. Let's just say it was a good run.
I think I'll pull it back out next week. Vintage is great. It shows a lifetime of experience that still sells me well now that I'm the CEO."

Career Path: Examiner No. 5 to Garrison No. 147
"Twenty years ago, I received the Examiner No. 5 as a graduation present from my future wife when I received my Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania. My first job was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology - and yes, the stereotypes portrayed in The Big Bang Theory are correct. My Examiner accompanied me to all my scientific conferences and meetings, my vacation trips, and my everyday work. Within a year, I realized that academia did not suit me, so I joined the pharmaceutical industry as a Scientist.
Over 8 years, as I became a Senior Principal Scientist and a Project Manager, my Examiner accompanied me to all my scientific conferences and meetings and everyday work, on my honeymoon and vacation trips, on my business development trips, and, eventually, to the boardroom meetings. My Ghurka Examiner represented smart style, polished intelligence, and business common sense and good value. When I changed jobs and moved countries to join a German multinational company, first as a Specialist and then, over 8 years, as the country manager, my Examiner accompanied me faithfully and diligently, eventually collecting over a million travel miles in total.
Seven years ago, I set up my own company and my Examiner helped me build my business from a start up operation with 5 employees to its current family of 15 engineers and professional staff and 30 workers. After 17 years of nearly daily usage, my Examiner showed its age, but I still have it. Three years ago, I got the Garrison No. 147 as my daily briefcase. Once again, the Ghurka qualities of smart style, polished intelligence, and business common sense and good value were represented in this briefcase. Today, after twenty years of using Ghurka briefcases, I believe that I owe part of my success to you, thank you.
I hope to continue my long relationship with Ghurka for another twenty years with my other Ghurka bags and my two sons and my now wife who gave me the Examiner twenty years ago. But, that would be another story."
