A flooring specialist is on a roll after celebrating 40 years with East Anglian furnishings retailer Glasswells.
Robert Mead, who joined the Saffron Walden branch in March 1976 and has become one of the family firm’s leading flooring sales consultants, was presented with an award at the company’s annual dinner at the Apex in Bury St Edmunds on February 10.
He runs the branch’s successful flooring department, visiting homes to measure and give estimates, organising installation and providing advice.
Managing director Paul Glasswell said: “He is superb in his rapport with customers and his performance from our Saffron Walden flooring department is really rather remarkable, he is truly masterful at making the most of every opportunity that presents itself. He is a wonderful, cheerful man and we have been so lucky to have him working for Glasswells for all these years.”
He added: “Our long serving staff list is really rather extraordinary and it’s very satisfying for myself and the family that so many of our colleagues have enjoyed being at Glasswells for such large parts of their working life.”
Robert will be celebrating his milestone at Glasswells with a weekend away at Donington Park’s Download Festival in June.
