Senior master technician receives 25-year service award at Jennings Ford

Neil Gibson, Jennings Ford

A member of the aftersales team at Jennings Ford’s service department in Washington has been presented with his third loyalty award.

Neil Gibson, 58, from Consett in County Durham, who works as a senior master technician at the group’s Parsons Road dealership has achieved 25 years’ loyalty with the company.

The dealer group rewards members of its 524-strong workforce after 15 years of continuous service, then after every five years. Neil is one of 28 employees across the group who will receive rewards throughout 2017 for a combined 690 years of loyalty.

To mark the loyalty milestone, a presentation took place at the Washington-based workshop where group service and bodyshop manager, Brian Johnston, handed the loyalty certificate and vouchers to Gibson.

After leaving English Martyrs Secondary School in Leadgate, County Durham, Gibson embarked on a four-year Apprenticeship with the aim to become a fully-fledged motor vehicle technician.

Over the years he has gained valuable experience and knowledge working for a number of motor dealers across the North East.

In his current role as an approved Ford senior master technician, Gibson works as part of an eight-strong team at the Washington-based service and parts department.
