Randi Jermansen 139 Kingston Court Madison, NJ 07940-1151 Phone: 973.443.4491 E-mail: rjermansen@verizon.net News from your Correspondent Randi Jermansen: "Your correspondent recently became engaged to Scott Albiston and is planning a spring 2007 wedding in Madison, NJ. We met over five years ago singing in Harmonium Choral Society, a community chorus that is currently one of New Jersey's outstanding nonprofit choral arts organizations. Scott proposed to me in the middle of choir rehearsal in front of all of my fellow singers! The director had been forewarned and (after I said yes, of course!), the chorus broke out in song singing the 'Hallelujah Chorus' from Handel's Messiah! It was so appropriate and memorable. I am currently a senior manager and CPA at Cendant Corp. headquartered in Parsippany, NJ. After Cendant splits into four independent, publicly traded companies this summer, I will be assuming a similar position in corporate finance at Avis Budget Group, one of the spin-off companies. Scott graduated from Franklin & Marshall College with a degree in physics and is working as a senior engineer in information technology at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals in Madison, NJ.
