Last month, we celebrated Jon Terzza’s 10 years’ service with P & I. Joined by his colleagues for a presentation, Jon received a bottle of champagne, a box of chocolates, an extra day’s holiday and a cheque for £100 to mark his 10-year milestone with the company.
Jon joined P & I in early 2008 as a sales executive to help progress the company to the next level by procuring larger contracts, and by 2014, he had made his way to sales manager. In May this year, Jon moved into the role of business development manager, where he will be focusing his efforts on bids and tenders.
Jon is also a mentor to our newly appointed degree apprentice, Alicja Cyganik. Over the next three years, he will be responsible for giving Alicja the support and guidance required to successfully complete her degree apprenticeship programme with the University of Portsmouth.
Commenting on his journey within P & I, Jon said:
“I’ve witnessed P & I’s growth from 4 members of office staff, an office dog and a handful of engineers, to the hugely successful company we are today. We now employ over 50 staff which includes 10 apprentices in both engineering and business roles. I’m in a privileged position that I can be a mentor to new staff coming into the business and pass on my knowledge and skills to our future workforce.”
Managing Director of P & I, Paul Benfield, commented:
“We were delighted to celebrate this great achievement with Jon. Myself and technical director, Paul Terzza would like to thank Jon for his service and continued commitment to P & I. He has built our sales team up from the ground, to what it is today. We are looking forward to the next 10 years and what more Jon can bring to P & I.”
Congratulations from everyone at P & I!
