Ann Burgess joined Europa at the age of 17, working in a number of different roles before moving into customer services. Ann said: “I love the challenge of working at Europa because every day is different. We’re a very dedicated team, we strive to be the best and everyone has the same goal. Everyone works together really well which creates a brilliant atmosphere.”
The group was celebrated at our annual Long Service Awards evening at Ferraris restaurant in Bexley, where they were thanked and presented with gifts by our Managing Director, Andrew Baxter.
Andrew said: “I’m thrilled to see these valued members of the Europa team celebrating their 20 and 30-year work anniversaries with us. One of our company values at Europa is to encourage positivity and a family spirit. We believe that long term success comes to teams that work together, respect each other and value character and personality. The dedication of this group is wonderful to see and I’m very grateful for all of their hard work over the years.”
