Richard Sexton - one of our longest serving employees - December 2012Mark Spring December 12, 2012 : 0
dtr commercial manager Richard Sextone is one of our longest serving employees and this year he celebrates 21 years with dtr.
When Richard joined the company back in 1991, he was involved in the delivery and service team, otherwise known as ‘Auckland Central Operations’.
Since then, he has been involved in many aspects of the business, including credit, telesales and relieving as a branch manager.
In 1997, Richard was promoted to commercial account manager. At that time, the commercial team consisted of about five members; a manager, two account managers, a field representative and administration clerk.
Now, Richard is the commercial manager for the company, dealing with all commercial clients and assisting branches with this aspect of the business.
When Richard’s not wearing his dtr uniform, he’s actually quite the sportsman! Not only has he taken up cricket again after a 15-year layoff, but he’s also working on the golf handicap and helping coach a junior secondary school cricket team.
“I feel privileged to work for a company that feels very much like a family and the mutual respect that this brings. It was great to see all of the staff at the birthday event and also great to spend time socially with each other.” – Richard Sextone, dtr Commercial Manager
