Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), July 21, 2014 – Centura Tile, North America’s premier distributor of both residential and commercial floor and wall fashions, is both honoured and sad to announce the retirement of long-time employee Wayne Squirell.
“Wayne has been with Centura Tile since 1972, when it was known as Central Supply, and has represented Centura Tile with his diligent work ethic and dignity,” says Ross Keltie, vice president of sales and marketing at Centura Tile. “With over 42 years of dedicated service, he has been a treasure and an asset.”
Squirell started with Centura Tile in the carpet and vinyl cutting department and through his own will, hard work, and initiative, worked his way up to head of the purchasing department.
“What’s special about Wayne is that he’s the ultimate team player,” Keltie continues. “He participated in nearly every activity that we coordinated, work-related or not, and he truly appreciates everyone he worked with, both colleagues and customers.”
Keltie adds that Squirell’s wife, who also works for Centura Tile, will also be retiring in September and that everyone in Centura Tile wishes both of them nothing but the very best.
“Centura Tile will continue to excel in its operations and have already brought aboard individuals who are passionate about learning and growth,” Keltie concludes. “As one of the top tile distributors and floor covering companies in Canada, we hold ourselves to a higher standard and expect more from each and every person associated with our business.”
