Kathy Senior Retires After 38 Years of Service

Canada Pipe and Clow Canada team members recently bid a fond farewell to Kathy Senior who retired after 38 years.  Kathy’s career has been an evolution of sorts.  She began her career in July 1980 with Stanton Pipe as secretary to the Treasurer.  When Stanton was purchased by Canron in 1985, Kathy transferred to the Sales Department where she also served as the Personnel Manager. In 1989, her career took another turn when she became the secretary for the Vice-President General Manager at Canada Pipe. When Clow Canada later joined offices with Canada Pipe, Kathy continued to work as administrative assistant and handle payroll and benefits for both companies.

Kathy is looking forward to spending time working in her gardens but first she has two weddings to attend this summer.  In fact, she will be traveling over 3,000 km to a wedding in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada on a motorcycle.  Sounds like Kathy has lots of fun planned for her retirement years.

We wish Kathy best wishes for a long and happy retirement!

Clow Corona’s Got Talent, Too!

Speaking of the talents at Futurecom team member Milos Rankovic and not to be outdone, Clow Corona production supervisor, Jose Martinez, also created a new company sign.  This sign was made with a stainless-steel plate and back lit with LED lighting.  It is now proudly displayed on the exterior of the facility in Corona, California to welcome customers and guests as they drive through the front gates. Jose is currently working on a smaller display sign for the sales office.

During a recent trip to Clow Corona, Eric Benson, the Northern California District Sales Manager, met Clow Corona’s new Inside Sales Rep, Mike Moore.  During this face-to-face meeting, Eric offered Mike a product demonstration on the fly which he set up from his truck right outside the office.  This demonstration will help Mike better understand our products, services and our customers.  Inside Sales plays a key role in making our outside sales team successful and this demo and information will insure a better understanding from the beginning.  Kudos to Eric for taking the time to provide this helpful product training.
