Changing of the Guard

Changing of the Guard

The last couple of weeks has seen the Davidsons team say goodbye to two long term and valued employees with the retirement of Kerry and Lesley. 

The Tax and Business Services team at Davidsons said bon voyage to Kerry as he embarks on his next journey. Kerry has been with Davidsons for 23 years and a valued and respected member of our team! His retirement drinks was a great night and a chance to raise a glass with some of Kerry's clients who were able to attend, some of who have been a part of the Davidsons community for as long, and in some cases even longer, than Kerry himself. A great chance to reflect on and reinforce our long term client focus for success and also on us as a business to be able to attract and retain such amazing and loyal talent in our workplace.

After 23 years working for Davidsons and 15 years of them working for Steven Skoglund as his EA, we were so sad to see Lesley leave last Thursday as she enters into retirement. Testament to how well thought of she was, over 40 people accompanied her to her farewell lunch at the Barwon Edge Restaurant and her desk was covered in gifts, wine and flowers with lots of farewells from her colleagues and friends, some of whom she had seen marry, have children and grow up before her eyes. A loyal and supportive colleague, dedicated to her work and the people around her she will be greatly missed by all.
