Jolly good innings

Ian retires after 40 years with UK Greetings

FORTY years is a damn fine innings and that’s just what Ian Gunn has put on the board at UK Greetings.

Ian has just retired from the Dewsbury-based publishers and he and wife Susan celebrated by having dinner with UKG CEO Gary Rowley – himself a 40-plus years’ service man – in their home town of Aberdeen last week.
Tony Roberts, UKG Director Of Independent Sales, was also at the dinner and said: “After 40 years service with the company, beginning with Rust Craft, then Carlton Cards and now UK Greetings, Ian has decided to retire.
“He has specified that this has been a very difficult decision, however he now feels the time is right for him personally.
“Ian has been an extremely loyal and dedicated member of our sales force and has been held in high regard by management, colleagues and customers alike. He has built up a very good working relationship with all of his customers, and many have over the years become personal friends.”
Ian added: “I have been totally overwhelmed to receive the cards and the amount of cash from everyone at UK Greetings, I really have. There are so many people who have contributed it's unbelievable.
“I would normally like to thank people individually but this would be a difficult task! I intend to buy an iPad and case with the money so it will certainly be well used.”
