Dacres’ David celebrates
ONE of Dacre Son & Hartley’s directors, David Phillip, is celebrating 35 years with the business this month.
David, who was born and bred in Skipton, joined the firm straight from Oundle School as an articled pupil in 1977 and worked at the Ilkley office under the then managing partner Jim Horsley. He is now based in Otley. He says: “Having worked at Dacres for 35 years I have seen the firm sold into corporate ownership and then helped to buy it back during a very uncertain economic climate.
“To be a part of a business that has been established for almost 200 years and working within a large team of extremely loyal staff is a real privilege. I remain at the ‘coal face’ of the business looking after customers and staff.”
