A huge congratulations to Jon Townley who is the latest member of staff to join the Long Service Club having recently celebrated his 5th anniversary at OGL. Jon was presented with an Amazon eVoucher from Emma Porter on behalf of all the Directors.
Jon looks back on the last 5 years:
"I started at OGL in the Customer Services department working with Karen Fearnehough as a Customer Services Assistant. Fairly soon into the role, Karen moved departments to concentrate on Sunrise full-time and I took on the main responsibilities of her role. After working in Customer Services for four years (or thereabouts), changes within the Technical Service Desk led me to my current role as the Commercial Lead for the cDesktop team.
"My favourite aspect of working at OGL is the fact that every day can be dramatically different from the previous day. Each day there are challenges to overcome and when these are successfully dealt with, it is really rewarding. I have found from day one at OGL that everyone is extremely helpful and friendly which really contributes to a positive working environment."
Rachel Seagrove, Jon's manager, congratulates him on his 5 years at OGL:
“Jon joined OGL as a Customer Service Assistant, working with Karen Fearnehough. On a daily basis Jon would deal with weird and wonderful customer complaints and queries. Thanks to Jon’s and the Technical team’s hard work, complaints started to reduce. This allowed Karen to move over to the Sunrise Implementation Project and Jon continued with the Customer Service role. More recently Jon moved to a Commercial Lead role in the VDI team; this team is very unique but with Jon’s wit and charm, he has settled in and the team is working like a dream.
"Some of you may have seen Jon out and about in the local pubs around Bewdley and Kidderminster, singing with his guitar. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before Jon is back out there entertaining the people of Kidderminster. I would like to thank Jon for all his hard work, particularly since joining the VDI team. I look forward to seeing where Jon will be in another 5 years’ time.”
