In Loving Memory of Patricia Llewellyn
“As the boss of Optomen, she developed and produced some of the world’s best-known and loved programs and introduced us to amazing talent who until then were completely unknown, or only became household names after working with Pat,” she said. “She was a pioneer, creatively brilliant and a fantastic business leader.
