The team at Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Chingford have joined together to celebrate a colleague’s 47 years of loyal service.
Barry King, 66, began his career in the motor trade straight from school in 1967 and has had jobs in the parts department and workshop and is now a warranty administrator.
He has always worked with Vauxhall and is impressed at how the manufacturer has advanced over the years.
Colleagues at the Shadbolt Avenue dealership organised an all-expenses paid trip for Barry to attend a showing of the hit musical Jersey Boys in London as a thank you for his many years of loyal service.
General manager at the dealership Kevin Herridge said: “Barry is such a valuable and popular member of our team. His knowledge and experience is priceless and everybody at the dealership was delighted to celebrate his impressive work anniversary.”
King said: “I really enjoy my role at Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Chingford and work with a great team. I’ve seen many changes over the last 47 years but the importance of maintaining a high level of customer service has always stayed the same.
“I very much appreciate the effort everybody has put in to ensure my 47th year of service is memorable and I am really looking forward to seeing Jersey Boys.”
