Paul Pereira honoured with retirement celebration from Bland Group
On 17th December 2018, Bland Group proudly celebrated the retirement of Mr Paul Pereira who leaves the company at the end of December after 45 years of service.
Mr James Gaggero, Chairman of Bland Group hosted the event at the Rock Hotel amongst Paul’s present and past colleagues, friends and family. During the celebration, guests enjoyed drinks and canapes whilst sharing their warm memories of working with Paul.
Reflecting on 45 years of service Paul, who has performed varying roles across the Group, including 20 years in his outgoing post as Cargo Manager for Gibair, said “I feel extremely honoured to have worked for the Company during all this time”
James took the opportunity to present a parting gift to Paul on behalf of Bland Group and thanked him for his “long, dedicated service and commitment, not only to the Bland Group, but to Gibraltar International Airport and its positive development over the years”.
Paul was accompanied to the event with his family, including wife, Nina Pereira, and father Louis Pereira, who have coincidentally also served 45 years each for Bland Group. This extraordinary family have committed over 135 years of service for the Bland Group.
On behalf of Bland Group, we would like to take this opportunity to wish Paul every success and enjoyment in his retirement.
