Today we announce, with a touch of sadness, the retirement of our Managing Director, Mike Credicott. Mike joined us just under 5 years ago when the Novarc Group acquired P&B Weir Electrical. His mission was to integrate the business into Novarc, promote the broader product range now available to P&B from our sister companies in Novarc and to drive growth. There is no doubt that Mike has done this but he would be the first to tell you that it is journey with no end point and that there are bigger and better times ahead!
Another thing that Mike has managed to do within the business is to completely change the ethos and the energy. For those who have worked with Mike in the past, you will know that he is a people person. His leadership style is one of Empowerment, Accountability and Encouragement, he inspires people to do the best that they can, to take ownership and to try. This has brought Mike a lot of professional success and a lot of respect from colleagues and peers and we are pleased to have been part of his journey.
Mike will be the first to tell you that it is not about one person, it is about the team. He has always said that a good leader recognises that he is not good at everything but surrounds himself with people who are great at something and that is what brings success and team spirit. That said, he will be missed and one of our Leadership team came across a quote that really sums it up:
“Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.”
We wish Mike and Debbie health and happiness as they begin the next chapter of their lives together.
