TKC has announced the retirement of Mick Stirr, area sales manager, pictured left, after 22 years of service.
One of the company’s longest-serving employees, Stirr joined TKC in 1998 where he developed an in-depth knowledge of the company’s product portfolio and became TKC’s second area sales manager, covering an area initially spanning Leicestershire to Newcastle. His geographical area over the years became more focussed on Yorkshire as TKC’s business expanded.
Andy Marshall, sales director at TKC, pictured right, said: “Over a successful 22-year career, Mick has been instrumental in the growth and development of the business, building lasting relationships with customers thanks to his determination and drive and willingness to go the extra mile.
“To his credit, Mick has willingly adapted to the changing needs of the business, which is almost unrecognisable from when he first started. We wish him all the best and I personally extend my gratitude to him for his efforts and commitment to TKC.”
Stirr said: “I’ve been proud to be part of TKC’s growth over two decades and to have managed some of the same customers over all of that time, many of whom I’d now consider as friends. Whilst technology has undoubtedly changed the role, building relationships with customers is something that’ll never go out of fashion, and I’ve always taken a pride in doing for my customers what I’ve committed to. TKC have supported me and I’d like to think I’ve helped them develop – it’s been a great partnership.”
