It’s always nice to be able to report that new members of staff have joined a company, especially in these times when all we seem to hear about are redundancies. And it’s even better when they come as highly qualified and experienced as Dave Gadsden who joined Johnson Reed recently.

Dave has worked in the finance sector for over thirty years, including a stint in advertising at Piccadilly Circus, the heart of London’s publishing scene. He started out in 1976 working for Lloyds & Scottish Finance and then with Leeds Leasing, later to become Bibby Leasing. That’s when his passion for the catering and hospitality sector developed. He says,

“Working with dealers to offer finance is like becoming a member of their sales team. Meeting their customers and putting together a deal for a new kitchen in a hotel or restaurant gives me a real buzz – especially when I get invited to sample the finished article.”

Let’s also congratulate Carol Seery on her ten-year tenure with the company. She’s our Operations Director, with excellent organisational skills and a sharp eye for detail. Thank you Carol for all your hard work, it’s greatly appreciated.

And finally, on the team-building front, let’s raise a glass to Mark and his wife who have just produced a new member of their own team. Heidi is the name of their new baby and we wish them all well.
