Last year our Managing Director Mark Emberton and Business Support Director Paul Bradford each celebrated an important milestone – 30 years with Waterman Aspen. Paul joined the company in July 1990 and Mark slightly after in October 1990.
For obvious reasons, a celebration wasn’t able to happen at the time, so we were pleased to finally be able to mark this momentous occasion with a belated get together at the Etihad Stadium, home of Mark’s beloved Manchester City FC.
The Mancunian Suite awaited the guests, a beautiful music themed hospitality area that overlooked the pitch, walls adorned with signed gig posters from some of music’s most famous acts who have performed previously at the Etihad. Our logo lit up every screen in the venue which was impressive to see!
After their welcome drink, guests were treated to a tour of the stadium, dressing room, tunnel and dugout which was absolutely excellent and really interesting to be part of, even for the non-football fans in the midst.
Then it was back to the main suite for speeches given by Donnie Matheson and then Mark himself did a short turn, thanking everyone for coming and revealing that he actually hadn’t realised this event was taking place until about 2pm that afternoon. Well done to everyone for keeping the secret!
A 3 course dinner and drinks was then served while all the attendees enjoyed chatting to colleagues, catching up on events that have happened in the past 18 months.
The impressive venue and excellent company made for a really enjoyable evening and a fitting way to celebrate such important achievements. Congratulations again to Mark and Paul.
