Long Serving Driver Stevie Stones RetiresKirstie Aitken, 29th September 2017
Stevie Stones has been with Currie Solutions for 40 years and today he made his last journey for us as he begins his retirement.
Stevie is the longest serving member of our team and has been an asset to the growth of Currie Solutions. He has worked within the office as European Transport manager and on the road across the UK and Europe as one of our long distance drivers.
He is well liked and appreciated by our customers and colleagues alike.
The Board of Directors thanked Stevie for his loyalty and work over the years. Allan Jamieson, Operations Director said:
“Stevie has been a valuable member of our team throughout the years. He has always been reliable, friendly and a team player who will be missed within the business”
On speaking to Stevie we asked what kept him in the job for so many years:
“European driving became my lifestyle as over the years I could be away for up to 3 weeks at a time across countries such as Russia, Scandinavia and the rest of Eastern Europe. I got to travel the length and breadth of Europe and I was always made welcome, met new friends and enjoyed the independence across there.”
After receiving his gifts from the company he expressed his gratitude
“I never expected to receive something as often people are forgotten in big companies such as this.”
Before leaving his truck for the last time, Stevie shared memories from the early days, the 24hr border crossings into Poland, his ice road trucker travels over the Alps in -40 degrees to the infamous Calais crossings and the day before digital.
Not many people know this but he once wrote a book of his travels for his children’s school, we hope that his retirement allows him to create a part 2!
