There are not many people who can proudly boast about 25 years of loyal service to one company. Gladys Mphamo is saying goodbye to Metraclark after 25 years 2 weeks and 2 days of dedicated service to the group.
Gladys is leaving Metraclark with a grateful heart. She feels that if it wasn’t for the company and the numerous opportunities she received, she is not sure where she would be today. Gladys started out as a cleaning lady at Recam but was always ambitious and determined to learn and move up the ranks. This is how she progressed to receptionist where she ultimately has become the voice of Metraclark. I think it’s safe to say that almost everyone in the industry has over time had a conversation with Gladys over the phone or had the privilege of meeting here at reception. It was the opportunity of meeting and talking to all kinds of people that made her enjoy her position at the company.
Many things have changed in 25 years including the company name but Gladys through her dogged determination and no nonsense attitude has weathered every storm and has gone through many changes with the company. Gladys recalls that when she first started here, Jurie was just a salesman at the Johannesburg branch and says that she has watched many people enter the company and grow, it has truly been amazing to have witnessed both the growth of the company and the people within it.
Gladys would like to thank the following people for their support and guidance throughout the years Jurie Benade, Kobus Hattingh, Mohammed Kadwa, Noor Hussain, Mark Gengan and Dave Woodward. We are sad to see her go but wish her the best with her well-deserved retirement.
