Campey Turf Care System’s Mick Parks retires after twenty-seven years

Blair Fergusonin People

Campey Turf Care System's outside service engineer, Mick Parks, has retired from his role after twenty-seven years at the company.

Mick started his job with Campey in July 1991 and has been a valuable member of the team ever since. His qualities, not only as an engineer but as a person, will be missed by everyone at Campey and the many customers he worked with throughout the years.

Mick was well known to his customers, especially in the North West of the UK. When needed, he would turn up at the customer's site and fix many problems himself reducing downtime and allowing the greenkeepers or groundsmen to continue their work.

Speaking about his time at the company, Mick said: "I've really enjoyed my time at Campey and I wouldn't change it. Richard has always let me get on with the job and, despite working alone most of the time, I've always had the support of the Campey team and I've valued the support and friendship of my colleagues and Richard."

Mick's contribution has been greatly valued by Richard Campey, who is sad to see him go after so many successful years.

"Mick has been with us for a long time, and he epitomises everything that is good about the company," he said. "He has represented us out in the field and always delivered excellent work, and he has been an esteemed member of our team throughout his 27-years with us.

"I'm sorry to see him go, but I'd like to thank him for his service and wish him all the best for his retirement."

In retirement, Mick intends to spend a lot more time with his family, particularly his grandchildren, and indulge his hobbies of cycling and walking.
