MGF bid farewell to longest serving staff member

On Wednesday 28th September 2022, MGF’s longest serving employee retired.

Ann Clarke has worked for MGF for 37 years dealing with the administration side of the business and holds the record for the longest serving MGF employee.

Ann started working at MGF on the 12th April 1985, after being interviewed and selected by Michael O’Hara himself. Ann’s first big task was to accompany Michael into Manchester to purchase the first company computer. She very quickly demonstrated her hard work and dedication to her work and was able to use the computer to organise the company’s admin. Ann has been a key part of the team ever since.

Ann will be missed by all who had the chance to work with her.

“Ann was very anxious after her A-Levels and didn’t much enjoy her time bookkeeping at a local furniture place, so when she applied for Michael’s advert far an Admin Assistant, her mum, Eileen made sure to vet Michael before giving the seal of approval for her to join MGF.

Michael remembers particularly panicking about the assurances he made to Eileen to look after Ann and hopes that he has fulfilled this.”

Ronnie Ranson, Operations Manager

MGF wish Ann the best for this new chapter and a huge thank you for all of her hard work and commitment to the company over the years, not to mention the friendships and good times along the way.

Ann, you will be missed!
