LeasingOptions.co.uk, one of the UK’s leading car leasing companies, has surprised its longest serving members of staff with a presentation to say thank you for their ongoing commitment and hard work.

Nigel and Karin Brain surprised the team with a pizza and ice cream day at the head office in Walkden before inviting the 10 longest serving members of staff – who have clocked up an impressive 150 years’ service between them – for a special presentation.

Jo Farnworth, who works in customer support, is the longest serving member of staff and has been with LeasingOptions.co.uk since the beginning – over 30 years -and seen the owners, Nigel and Karin Brain grow the business to be one of the nation’s leading car leasing companies.

Nigel Brain, co-founder and managing director of LeasingOptions.co.uk said:

“Karin and I feel truly humbled to have such a loyal and hardworking team around us. We fully recognise how rare it is to have so many people stay with one company for so long and we are so proud and thankful to have each and every one of them support us.

“We have always been focused on hiring who we believe to be the best people and then treating them as they deserve – as a team of hard working individuals who are driven to achieve amazing results for the business. I think that approach has really worked for us and that’s why we are able to celebrate and recognise such an incredible achievement.”

Michelle Fairclough, Rob Heys, Chris Davies, Vanessa Thomson and Ben Durkin have been with LeasingOptions for over 15 years and worked within a number of business support and service roles. Aron Stevenson and Claire Todd have both worked in the same teams for over 10 years.

In acknowledgement of their long service, each member of staff received a bottle of champagne, £50 voucher and an invitation to attend a special lunch with the owners, Nigel and Karin.
