Curti Lifts first ever employee celebrates 25 years at the firm
On Saturday 1st December Curti Lifts’ first ever employee Jean Nettleton celebrates her 80th birthday.
Jean was the first person employed by company founder Joe McShera way back in 1993 as a Telesales Executive at his first office premises at Holroyd Hill Wibsey and is still working for the company on a part-time basis in the same capacity.
Celine Walgrove – New Lifts Director “I joined Curti Lifts as receptionist in September 1996 shortly after Anita and for 2 years it was just us. Jean was always the mother hen. I can’t imagine Curti Lifts without her”
Joe McShera – Company Founder “Jean was the first person I employed when it was just me. For some time all our sales were generated just by Jean, she was and still is indispensable. As far as I am concerned she has a job here for as long as she wants one”
The company usually celebrates employee birthdays with a buffet but this one is special to everyone. “We want Jean to realise how much we love her so we are going to town” said Julie, Accounts Manager “We have ordered an 80 cake and bought her some Euros for her next holiday.”
The celebrations are due to take place on Monday 3rd December at the company offices on Moore Avenue, Wibsey.
