Issue 6 – June/July 2022
Farewell Phil Green
NECA Education & Careers staff gathered to give the outgoing CEO a send-off that reflected the culture he helped cultivate over the last eight years.
Phil spoke with pride and gratitude of the way the company had developed during his time as CEO, and was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a drill kit as a memento of his time working in the electrical industry.
We also bid farewell to Ashleigh Mitchell, Executive Assistant to the CEO & CFO, and cleaner Lenny Shiells was presented with an award in recognition of his years of service.
