Peter Falconar has racked up 40 years’ service at wholesaler Palmer & Harvey.

Falconar joined Plymouth-based WC Griffiths and Sons, which was acquired by P&H in 1984, as a trainee accountant on 1 January 1974. He has since held a number of roles including field administration manager and operations manager, but now works on stock control monitoring.

“Peter is a most approachable colleague and we are delighted to celebrate his very special anniversary as the longest serving employee based at our head office,” said group director of HR Brian Hurley. “P&H is fortunate to have nearly 100 staff who have worked for us for over 25 years .”
