So often internal staff do not have the opportunity to be recognised for their invaluable contribution to the success of the company, but if anyone deserves a moment to shine it’s Lynda Pile.
Joining Court Catering Equipment 33 years ago as an Administrator, she is now an expert and jack of all trades, having worked over the years in spares, service, accounts and marketing within the company.
Lynda got a first class Honours Degree but after 4 years working for a large company she decided joining the distributor when it was still in its embryonic stages. This was far more suited to her and she became Court’s sixth employee.
Her analytical background has been crucial in how she has developed the various departments she has run. Along the way she has become an expert in catering equipment advice for clients, as well as being very knowledgeable in spares issues. She was also a fundamental part of the design process of Court’s bespoke service management software.
Lynda regularly puts in endless hours to help the service team achieve levels of service the company is renowned for, ensuring engineers are in the right place at the right time. Furthermore, she has taken and passed the CFSP accreditation.
With a patient manner, her remarkable problem-solving abilities are exceptional. Her involvement in so many aspects of the business is such a great help when team members are getting frustrated. Her positive attitude and her ability to motivate people for work is truly recognised and appreciated by her industry colleagues.
