Marine Harvest employee nets 40 years of service
A LOCHABER employee at Marine Harvest has celebrated crossing the 40-year milestone with the company – and has become the first person to do so.
Steve Bracken started with the company when he was aged 24 on May 23, 1977, under Unilever, as a fish farm assistant, based at Lochailort.
The tonnage in 1977 was 250 and the firm operated at three sites – Lochailort, Leven and Invergarry.
In Steve’s 40-year service he has held many positions working in both Scotland and on a secondment in Sri Lanka.
He has worked as a site supervisor, factory manager, general manager and on technical support before taking up his current position as business support manager, which he has been in since 2000.
Steve was joined by friends and colleagues recently in Stob Ban where Ben Hadfield presented him with his long service award, thanking him for his enormous contribution and everything that he has done and continues to do for Marine Harvest.
Steve Bracken and Ben Hadfield cut a celebration cake marking Steve’s 40th year with Marine Harvest.
