RGB Building Supplies has recognised the exceptional commitment of two of its longest-serving employees, Lee Atkinson and Geoff Harry, who are both based at the Porthleven branch. Their combined 85 years of unwavering service and invaluable contributions to the company are a testament to their dedication and loyalty.
Lee Atkinson, an integral part of the Porthleven branch for an astounding 40 years, originally joined when it was known as Hosking Building Supplies. Starting his journey in counter sales, Lee quickly demonstrated his exceptional abilities and dedication. Within just 12 months, he rose to the role of branch manager and has continued in that position ever since.
Geoff Harry, another stalwart at the branch, has dedicated an impressive 45 years of service to the company. Geoff, currently a yard sales assistant has held various positions within RGB Porthleven during his long tenure, adapting and thriving as the depot evolved over the years.
Reflecting on his time at RGB, Atkinson said: “Every day, I continue to learn something new, and it’s been a privilege to work alongside such an incredible branch team. Some of our team members have been here for 25 and 35 years, and that speaks volumes about the sense of family and commitment that defines our workplace.”
Harry added: “Working with the Porthleven branch team every day has been a fantastic experience – there’s great camaraderie. It’s an honour to be part of a team that consistently delivers exceptional service to our customers.”
Jenny Naylor, managing director of RGB Building Supplies, personally recognised Lee and Geoff’s outstanding service by presenting them with flowers and bottles of Champagne. She expressed her gratitude and admiration for their dedication. “RGB continues to thrive due to the unwavering dedication of employees like Lee and Geoff. They have been the backbone of our Porthleven branch for decades, and I thank them for their hard work, which has contributed significantly to our success. They are part of an amazing team in Porthleven, and we are incredibly fortunate to have them as part of the RGB family,” she said.
