Last week we recognised another fantastic milestone within the company, 25 years of dedication & commitment from Neil Percy. In order to show our gratitude to Neil for being with the company for so long, we presented him with a gift on behalf of the company.
Neil is now the 15th Springfield employee to reach this incredible milestone, with 13 of those team members still working in the business. Although we couldn’t all join Neil in the office, there was no way we were letting this moment go without sharing our congratulations and appreciation for our long-standing colleague via a video message!
Neil first joined the company back in December 1995. After joining the YTS (Youth Training Scheme), he came through the Phoenix Training Centre at Reckitt & Colman. This program gave Neil the fundamental knowledge required to take on his first role at Springfield. Neil joined our design studio under Jane Stephenson (another member of Springfield’s 25 club) as a YTS, serving his time to become a fully qualified Reprographic artist. Neil soon progressed into a highly skilled and experienced operator. Recognising this talent, Neil’s organisational skills and natural instinct to provide help and assistance he was soon promoted into a management role, one he currently holds to this day.
Now leading a team of 16 in the Brand Management department, Neil is an integral part of the senior management team at Springfield. It’s safe to say Neil’s rise through the company ranks is a testament to his talent, work ethic and teamwork.
Thank you Neil, here’s to many, many more!
