Steve Bagshaw Retires

Kersia UK’s Marketing Director Steve Bagshaw is retiring and leaving the business at the end of December.

Steve has been with the business since 1988 when he joined Holchem as a Technical Sales Consultant, supporting a number of food and beverage customers.  Steve was one of the company’s first employees and worked alongside the rest of the team building up the business to help it become the huge success it is today.

During his career Steve’s technical knowledge of hygiene systems, developing bespoke systems for each individual customer and his far-reaching knowledge of products was second to none.  He worked tirelessly for the company and our customers for decades.  He joined the board when he became Technical Director in 1993 and retained this role for 20 years.  His insight into customer knowledge and understanding of every aspect of the business enabled him to successfully lead the team of Technical Consultants, as well as working on product development and advising customers on the most suitable hygiene plans for them.

Steve is well respected within the company and the industry for not only his technical knowledge but his kindness and mentoring of many staff, helping them progress their own careers. His generosity in sharing his skills and expertise is commendable.

Steve is also renowned for taking part in all the company ‘sporting challenges’ including It’s A Knockout, the National Three Peaks and the Coast to Coast to name a few.
