Retirement calls

If you’ve ever phoned us or popped into our office, chances are you’ll have spoken with and met the inimitable Sue Blakeman.

Sue B, as she’s fondly known, has been part of the Diamond scenery since May 2006 and has played a key role in our success story. But Sue’s decided it’s time to hang up the phone, turn off her computer, close the admin filing cabinet and head off into the Sheffield sunset for her retirement.

Commenting on her time with the company, director Peter Callahan said: “Sue’s kept us all in check over the years, even our suppliers and customers! She’s made sure all commercial aspects of Diamond have been attended to properly and have been completed in the right way, at the right time.

“Her no-nonsense attitude hides the fact that she’s a real softie at heart and we know she’s looking forward to spending more time with her grandson and her family.”

Adds fellow director Sue Wright: “Peter and I would like to thank Sue for all her hard work over the years, she’s made a valuable contribution to Diamond and we’re really going to miss her when she leaves at the end of August.”

Concludes Sue B: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here and seeing the company grow and progress considerably over the last few years has been absolutely fantastic. I wish Pete, Sue and the team every success for the future!”
