John Thompson Retirement

After over 26 years of dedicated service, John Thompson will be retiring from The Kerfoot Group at the end of this month.

As a well-loved and highly respected Director of The Kerfoot Group it was imperative that we all showed our appreciation for his hard work and commitment to us, and the business, over the years.

So last week at Kerfoot HQ we had a cake and bubbly afternoon to toast John’s achievements and retirement. David Kerfoot (MBE DL) gave a speech, reminiscing on some of the most poignant memories of his time working with John, and shared the gratitude and high esteem that both he, and the whole of the Kerfoot family hold him in.

The following day in Goole Jennifer Kerfoot, CEO, also gave a speech at a similar party for all John’s colleagues there. Sharing her memories of her time working with John and the difference he has made over those many years, particularly his contribution to the expansion of The Kerfoot Group being a major highlight of his career.

On both occasions John said a few words sharing with us his fondest memories of his time at The Kerfoot Group, his gratitude for the opportunities and also his plans for the future – a lot of which will be in his garden!

John will be so very greatly missed by all of us who have worked with him, past and present, and we wish him the happiest and healthiest of retirements to our one and only “JT”!
