Se­prod salutes a true icon

Jamaica Gleaner - - HALL OF FAME -

IT IS with a deep sense of joy for my dis­tin­guished col­league, Gary ‘Butch’ Hen­drick­son, that I say con­grat­u­la­tions on be­ing in­ducted into the PSOJ Hall of Fame. You are truly de­serv­ing of this hon­our.

While you have been named an ‘in­dus­try gi­ant’, you have al­ways mod­elled a deep dis­play of hu­mil­ity, a com­mit­ment to hard work, a will­ing­ness to speak your truth, and the im­por­tance of not just do­ing well, but do­ing good. Thank you for be­ing the na­tion­al­ist that you are, for car­ing about your em­ploy­ees and oth­ers around you, for be­ing forth­right and in­sight­ful, and for truly valu­ing Brand Ja­maica. You have the gift to see be­yond the present and to em­brace what is pos­si­ble to­mor­row with­out los­ing your fine wit and con­ta­gious hu­mour.

Some men have been cred­ited in the past with ‘walk­ing with kings and yet never los­ing the com­mon touch’. We are hon­oured to have had the priv­i­lege to wit­ness that walk in you and to be able to hon­our you in the midst of it. Con­tinue to be the ex­cep­tional leader that you are and shine your unique light of ex­cel­lence! Hearty con­grat­u­la­tions, Butch! KELLY TOMBLIN Pres­i­dent & CEO Ja­maica Pub­lic Ser­vice Co. Ltd ON BE­HALF of the Se­prod fam­ily, I wish to con­grat­u­late Gary ‘Butch’ Hen­drick­son on his in­duc­tion into the Pri­vate Sec­tor Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Ja­maica Hall of Fame. ‘Butch’ has not only demon­strated in­cred­i­ble busi­ness acu­men but, more im­por­tant, he has shown every­one that the busi­ness com­mu­nity can play an in­te­gral role in im­prov­ing the lives of all Ja­maicans.

In a pe­riod when the coun­try is des­per­ately search­ing to find the keys to un­lock growth, ‘Butch’ and his team at Na­tional Con­ti­nen­tal Bak­ing Com­pany (NCC) have been driv­ing growth through in­no­va­tion, tenac­ity and a will­ing­ness to in­vest in man­u­fac­tur­ing. A true icon and a bea­con of hope for Ja­maica’s man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor, which has en­dured set­backs in the last few decades, ‘Butch’ has been one of the trail­blaz­ers, dis­play­ing pas­sion and un­wa­ver­ing ded­i­ca­tion in mo­ti­vat­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of en­trepreneurs and in­trapreneurs lead­ers in var­i­ous in­dus­tries. We at Se­prod salute you, ‘Butch’. May you and your NCC team con­tinue to pros­per and mo­ti­vate the rest of us to as­pire for great­ness. RICHARD PANDOHIE CEO & Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Se­prod Group of Com­pa­nies
