Farewell to a Much Respected Colleague

We are sad to announce that our Field Sales Executive, Billy Reid, has left the Company, having decided to take early retirement.

Billy joined the Company in 1985, as an Area Sales Representative and was promoted to Midlands Area Salesman in 1990, when he moved to his present home in Alsager.  Billy soon settled into his new role and rose to the challenge of developing his new area to achieve its potential, winning a commendation from the management team in 2001 for his excellent sales results.  At that point, his title was changed to that of Sales Executive, to reflect his achievements.  In 2006, he was released from his normal sales duties for one day a week, as he was made solely responsible for developing N.H.S. accounts.  Billy attacked this with his usual flair and was soon well known in N.H.S. circles.  He continued to be one of the Company’s most successful salesmen, until his recent illness, which has obliged him to absent himself from work.

Billy will be very much missed, by all who knew him, not least his customers, who thought the world of him.  He was always ready with a smile and had time to stop and chat, taking an interest in the events around him.  His character shone through and a supplier recently described him to me as ‘a true scouser’.  She felt he typified all that was good about Liverpool, having a strong and tolerant character full of humour at the same time.   She said she respected him greatly and would miss dealing with him.

I know of no-one who met Billy who did not take an instant shine to him, such was his personality. He was a true gentleman and a great salesman. 

I am sure you will all wish to join me in wishing Billy a long, happy and healthy retirement, spent with his family, enjoying all that is good in life.
