OFFICE PARTY MARKS RETIREMENT OF KEITH BATCHELOR
Attended by upwards of 100 guests, Pollard held a party at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth to mark the retirement of Pollard’s Marketing Executive Keith Batchelor, one of the most recognisable faces in the region’s construction industry.
Keith joined Pollard at the beginning of 2011, charged with developing the business in the Devon region. His extensive knowledge of the area and relationships with so many key clients and consultants has seen the company subsequently grow significantly, culminating in the opening of a regional office in Plymouth in 2015.
Bill Badham, Managing Director of Pollard paid tribute to Keith’s work ethic and enthusiasm by saying:
“Keith has been part of the fabric of the region’s construction industry for a very long time. The fact that so many have attended this evening and the kind words we have heard speaks volumes about his popularity and dedication. He has helped us to establish our business in the region and has given us the platform to be one of the key contractors in the area. We have built a fantastic team in the Plymouth office, with Niki Stigwood now taking over the business development role.”
In response, Keith commented:
“To see so many friends and colleagues join me to celebrate my retirement has been very special. I have had a fantastic five years with the company and it has been a delight to see our profile grow and an office opened in Plymouth. I will watch with interest and pride as the company looks to go from strength to strength and I wish you all every success.
