Gilberts Blackpool honours long service of technical product manager

Gilberts Blackpool has honoured its technical product manager Alastair McGowan with a ceremony acknowledging his 25 years at the company.

Alastair, aged 49, first joined Gilberts as a contracts engineer in 1991 and has since progressed through roles including projects/drawing office manager and projects department manager, to his latest post as technical product manager.

Gilberts’ managing director Jonathan Haslam commented: “In this day and age, it is increasingly unusual to have members of staff stay, and grow with you, for decades. Our board of directors aims to provide a positive working environment that rewards talent and loyalty; Alastair’s long service attainment is the latest, and demonstrates we are a great company to work with, and for.”

Alastair added: “The honesty and integrity of the people at Gilberts, from shop floor to the board, coupled with the ability to undertake a variety of roles and develop my skill base, have been major factors to my long service.”
