Geoff Ward, co director of Wisbech firm Crowson and Ward Ltd, has retired after 26 years’ partnership with Mike Crowson running their successful office supplies company.
The company first began in 1987 where it has been ever-growing in many product lines from general office stationery, furniture and AV systems to now bespoke furniture, ergonomic back care chairs and educational supplies.
Geoff and Mike both built up the company profile and pride themselves on a professional service with the personal touch.
Geoff visited many of his clients and contacts who have said he will be missed and have thanked him for his support and loyalty over the years.
A keen golfer, Geoff, who retired on June 28, is expected to spend some of his retirement on the golf course as well as spending time with his family and friends.
Staff celebrated his retirement with a surprise meal and evening out at the Crown Lodge Hotel at Outwell.
Also a special surprise day was held on site with a buffet where guests were invited to come and wish Geoff well in his retirement.
Geoff enjoyed his day and staff thank everyone who came along to share it.
He will be missed and colleagues wish him well in his retirement.
Said Kelly Chapman: “I will miss Geoff, not only as a valued member of our team but also his loyalty and faithfulness.
“I thank him for his advice, support and friendship over the 14 years I have worked here. It has been a pleasure to work with him.
“Many best wishes for your retirement, stay happy and most of all enjoy.”
The company will continue to expand and look to the future.
