Forty years at Kent Blaxill for Louise Tucker

Published:  06 December, 2017

While Kent Blaxill has a long and prestigious history in Colchester, with over 180 years in business, long-serving employee, Louise Tucker, has just reached her own personal milestone.

Louise, who joined Kent Blaxill in 1977, said: It’s been so exciting to experience first-hand the company’s expansion throughout East Anglia, as well as all the in-credible new technology. Back in the 70’s, my first role was as an Office Junior, and I progressed to Company Credit Controller before taking maternity leave. On my re-turn, I took over the responsibility of payroll, which now covers 240 employees. Most of all, it has been lovely to work for an independent family-fun business, which brings with it a more personal and fulfilling sense of achievement for everyone here."

In keeping with tradition, Managing Director Simon Blaxill presented Louise with a watch as a ‘thank you’ for her contribution over the 40 years of service with the company. Simon said: “Louise has been a superb employee and brought so much to the firm. To have people within your team like Louise makes the world of differ-ence, and Louise stands for everything Kent Blaxill represents - friendly, reliable, providing outstanding service, and great to work with. We hope to see her remain with us for many more years to come.”
