Personal Success for James
With most of the staff at HQ this week, we gathered for our monthly company meeting to celebrate the successes of October, as well as a personal success too for one employee. Staff member James Myall has reached his ten year service with Thinking Space. To celebrate this achievement, our Managing Director, Wayne Palmer presented him with a commemorative plaque, a special gift and a personalised card, signed by all his colleagues.
During the presentation, Wayne recalled how James is probably the only employee within the company that has worked in every department. Starting life at Thinking Space within the sales department selling our Kanya aluminium profile range, James has worked his way around the business, in marketing, design and production, and is currently our Design and Operations Leader for Kanya UK. During his time at Thinking Space, James has been instrumental in the company achieving ISO 9001 and continues to coordinate this role along with quality and safety control. He also remains to be our Excel wizard, spreadsheets are definitely his thing!
James reminisced about the working environment when joining the company, at Unit 2. “There was only one toilet” sprang to mind, as well remembering the noisy week when the new mezzanine floor was installed in the factory. His interview for the position is also well-recalled, with a practical test required by connecting a Kanya T-piece together. James still remembers the part numbers.
Congratulations to James, who now joins another seven employees to make eight who have reached their ten year anniversary at Thinking Space.
Our thanks go to James for his contribution to the company over the last ten years, here’s to the next ten years at Thinking Space.
