Cornish Mutual’s longest serving member of staff has celebrated his 40-year milestone working for the rural insurance company.
57-year old facilities and projects Leader Derek Endean was first employed as a cover note clerk by the Truro-based company at the age of 17.
Over the years, Endean, who lives in Probus, has held a number of positions at Cornish Mutual including supervising the fire, household, motoring and accounts departments.
He was promoted to administration supervisor in 1999, before taking up his current role which includes having responsibility for ensuring the smooth running of the head office, dealing with contractors and suppliers, staff procedural issues, health and safety and environmental sustainability.
Cornish Mutual MD Alan Goddard said: “We are delighted to be celebrating Derek’s milestone with the company – 40 years is a long time and his knowledge and experience is truly valued by everyone here.”
