Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
