After more than a quarter of a century spent helping Berkeleyparks’ deliver excellence to its customers, Paul Tarr (pictured centre right) has retired.
The affable sales and marketing director, who had clocked up an impressive 26 years of service, left the role in July.
Paul, 65, intends to take the rest of 2019 off, appraising his options and deciding whether or not to stay fully retired.
He has some foreign travel planned and would like to spend more time with his grown-up children.
Paul said: ‘It has been a privilege and an honour to work for Berkeleyparks for such a long period of time.
‘It’s been a wonderful experience.’
Managing director, David Curson, added: ‘Paul will be retiring from The Berkeley Leisure Group after 26 years of loyal and successful service at the end of July.
‘Paul has worked tirelessly, ensuring that the high standard of the group’s 50 parks has been maintained.
‘His years at the company have seen substantial change to the design of homes and he has also helped steer the company through various legislative changes.
Over the years his primary role has been in sales and marketing for the company and he was awarded a directorship in 2004.
‘The company would like to wish Paul a long and happy retirement.’
