Ivan Hunt to retire in January 2011


Sunday, 14 November 2010 - 19:26

Company Director, Ivan Hunt, is to retire from the day to day operations of the business in January 2011 following 45 years of service.  Ivan follows older brother Gordon Hunt, who retired from the business in July 2009 and Ivan's wife, Elizabeth, who retired in 2007.  Ivan will leave Derrick Hunt as Managing Director of L Hunt & Sons, with support from Matthew and Sarah, Derrick's son and daughter who have managerial roles within the company.

Ivan's contribution toward the growth and continued success of L Hunt & Sons has been pheonominal.  From the year Ivan started with the family firm as a driver at the age of 21, to installing the workshop and warehousing facilities which have grown to what they are today, Ivan has steered the company through both good and bad.  His day to day contribution to the business will be greatly missed, but with Matthew and Sarah now well grounded, it is now time for both Ivan and L Hunt & Sons to look toward the future.

Ivan will continue to provide support for the business, but is looking forward to the rewards retirement brings.

L Hunt & Sons would like to formally thank Ivan for his contribution and wish both him and his wife Elizabeth well for a long, happy and well deserved retirement.
