Popular TBS Sales Advisor Hangs Up His BootsNovember 19, 2012
Regular customers at TBS Towcester branch have known for a while that “the Gentleman of TBS”, Trevor Purkiss, hasn’t been sat at his desk. In fact, he hasn’t been too well, but we’re glad to say he’s picking up now. Even so, he has decided to retire.
Trevor wasn’t always in the building trade. He trained as a caterer and worked in kitchens for a number of years. Then he became a baker, getting up at an unearthly hour of the night to prepare loaves and rolls in the village bakery at Braunston, Warwickshire.
When he came to TBS, his calm and kindly nature quickly made their mark. He gained a list of regular customers who always made for his desk, knowing that nothing would be too much trouble and that he would get what they wanted at a good price. Trevor often took work home with him – a sign of how committed he was.
Colleagues, customers and friends unite, we have no doubt, in a big “thank you” to Trevor and to wish him all the best for a long and enjoyable retirement.
