John's rewarded for two decades of loyalty

Posted on 23 Feb 2009

A member of staff at Jennings Ford in Stockton has been rewarded for more than two decades of loyalty to the company.

John Overton, 58, from Stockton, has worked as a parts distribution driver at the group’s Yarm Road dealership for the past 20 years.

Responsible for delivering parts to the group’s branch network across the region, John has always been happy at his work, which is one of the main reasons for his loyalty.

“I work with a good team and thoroughly enjoy my job, so I’ve had no reason to want to work for anyone else,” said John.

A plumbing and heating engineer by trade, John also spent time working in the shipbuilding industry, until he was faced with redundancy in the 80s as a result of closures.

John went on to say; “Fortunately, I managed to find alternative employment at JenningsFord and I’ve been on the books ever since!”

To mark the special occasion, parts manager, Peter Binks, presented the loyalty vouchers to John.

Peter said; “John has always been a hard working and an extremely dedicated member of staff and it was a pleasure presenting the reward vouchers to him,”
