St Helens, United Kingdom (23rd October, 2012) – Springfield Mobile, a leading UK manufacturer of portable buildings for use in the education, business and sports sectors, announce the retirement of their CEO after a fantastic 39 years.
Springfield CEO, Ken Britner, has finally taken a well deserved retirement after 39 years service. The seventy-two year old industry veteran has successfully seen the family run company through three recessions whilst in charge, and record sales figures in recent months have persuaded him to retire. Therefore, he has decided the time is right to place the reigns in the safe hands of Ken’s daughter and the current MD, Lyndsey Duggan, and her long serving management team.
In celebration of Ken’s commitment to the company, a farewell party was held and many well known names from the industry attended. Ken’s achievements were highlighted and celebrated in a number of heartfelt speeches on the night, with Ken putting his success down to “hard work, perseverance and a bit of good luck at the right times.”
A particularly poignant moment was when a number of long serving employees presented Ken with a gift to mark their appreciation of the excellent relationship he always maintained with the shop floor, and of his loyalty and determination to keep them all employed through even the toughest of times.
Ken will have no trouble filling his spare time, as he has six grandchildren to keep him occupied and regularly attends Lancashire Cricket Club and Manchester United’s ground, Old Trafford. However, he will attend the Monthly Management Meetings where his experience and sound judgement are highly appreciated and valued.
A spokesperson for Springfield Mobile commented: “Ken has been at the heart of Springfield Mobile for 39 years, and has been committed to helping the company and its staff flourish during his many years of service. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ken for his unfailing dedication and wish him a wonderful retirement. We look forward to his advice in the upcoming months and years.”
