Farewell to Ken

After eight successful years with FSL, we bid farewell to our Managing Director, Ken Gillingham, at the start of August, as he began his retirement.

Our founder, David Pirrie, remembers Ken as

“A sound leader, both fair and firm yet open and accessible. He has made a remarkable impact on the company. He took the reins in 2014, became the face of FSL and turned it into a company with an extraordinary reputation for quality and service. From meetings with both clients and staff whenever we talk about Ken there is always a warmth and open acknowledgement that they thoroughly enjoy talking with Ken.

We are sad to see Ken go, but we all wish him a carefree and relaxing retirement.
