Changing of the guard

It is with bittersweet sadness that Britannia announces the retirement of Brian Miles who has been the Operations Manager for Britannia Lanes of Cornwall for almost 37 years. Brian’s last day will be on Friday 22nd December 2017, he was 31 years old when he joined the company in February 1981, if you compare the photo of him when he joined in 1981 and the recent photo of him in 2017 you can see he has aged pretty well and managed to keep (most of) his hair! Must be the fresh countryside air?

On Brian’s final day, Britannia Lanes of Cornwall will be hosting a joint retirement and Christmas party where Brian’s very long career will be celebrated in style.

As Brian leaves Britannia to enjoy himself without the daily stresses of work, Director Mark Lane’s son Matt will be taking on the Operations Manager role following Brian’s seal of approval after putting Matt thorough his paces during his last few months. Assisting Matt will be Brian’s son Justin Miles who 2 years ago, took over from John Barnett when he retired, as Assistant Manager.

Mark Lane commented, “Thank you for being a tireless professional and a good friend.”

On behalf of all the Britannia family, we hope Brian has a wonderful retirement! He will be missed, but never forgotten and thank him for all he has done for the company.
