Farewell & Thanks
Thanks from Dave Hughes on his retirement / David Hughes
After 41.5 years service today, May 31st, is my final working day in ESB. I have had a wonderfully happy working life with many joyful memories. To all my colleagues and friends, past and present, I wish to say a big thank you. A particular thank you to all those that were able to join me and my family at the MS Teams farewell event last week and to those that have been in touch with cards, messages and calls. I’m now about to embark on the next phase in my life with much optimism. Best wishes. Over and out!
Reminder; Ray O’Mullane is retiring / Dave Carey
Ray O’Mullane will be retiring soon from ESB and starting the next phase of his life (on the International Tennis Circuit). His last official day in the office will be Tuesday next, 2nd June. Ray started his career in Patrick St Cork working on the “counter” providing customer service for Customer Supply and Networks.
Nine years later a vacancy arose for a clerical officer covering customer service and sales in the Mallow area office and Ray jumped at this. Having got a taste for commission and sales Ray took up a permanent position as a salesperson in ESB Retail Academy Street Cork where he remained for fourteen years until ESB’s exit from the electrical retail business. Not wanting to stray too far from customers, the next stint of Ray’s career was spent in the National Customer Care Centre in Wilton supporting staff and providing customer service for ESBN customers.
During this period Ray was also involved in project work on EBilling for Customer supply and in the launch of Electric Ireland’s online store. For the past three years he has worked on the Smart Metering Project in a customer facing role. He is widely known throughout the organisation through his many roles. For many years Ray has also been involved in organising the Christmas staff functions in Wilton and fundraising for local charities including Edel House. Ray will be missed by those who have worked with him for his professionalism and good humour, friendly ear and of course his Guitar!!!
We will be setting up an online MSTeams call at 3pm on Tuesday. If you would like an invite to this meeting please contact Dave Carey. We wish Ray, Josette, and their Family all the best for the future.
