BeA bids farewell to longstanding team member

BeA, a specialist manufacturer of fastening tools and consumables for the fencing and garden buildings industry, has said farewell to a longstanding member of its team.

Chris Ibbotson retired from the business at the end of March after 15 years loyal service.

During his time with BeA, Chris worked as a member of the company’s nationwide, field-based sales force as a technical sales representative.

Responsible for a territory which covered West Yorkshire and neighbouring areas of North Yorkshire and Lancashire, Chris played a vital role in helping customers to benefit from BeA’s extensive range of high performance, highly reliable products.

Speaking of his retirement, Chris said: “I’m sad to be leaving BeA but at the same time I’m obviously looking forward to my retirement.

“BeA has been a good company to work for especially given its global and highly respected nature. I’ve also been fortunate enough to enjoy a role where every day has been different and where you’re always facing new challenges and learning something new.”

He continues: “I’ll miss the people the most. I’ve had some great customers and colleagues.”

John Mercer, managing director at BeA, adds: “Chris has been a valued member of the BeA team for a decade and a half. During that time, he’s made a genuine contribution to our on-going success and growth. He’ll be sorely missed and we wish him all the best for the future.”
