Long service recognised

21 April 2010

Alan Ridealgh, MD of Muntons, was caught by surprise at a recent managers' meeting when the company chairman interrupted proceedings to announce his long service award

Tom Wells, chairman of Muntons, presented Alan Ridealgh with a framed certificate and a corporate gift to mark his 30 years service with the company.

Before the award was actually presented, Tom Wells outlined Alan's career developments since he joined the company in 1980 as a trainee grain buyer at their Bridlington maltings through to the time he was appointed to the position of Managing Director in 2006. As Tom noted "Alan has consistently risen to every challenge that has been passed his way and it is really pleasing for me personally to be here today to be able to mark this moment."

Alan commented in his typical Yorkshire fashion "And I thought I had got away with it!" he continued "It is amazing how quickly the time has passed - a real testament to the qualities of the company and the people at Muntons that have made my time here so interesting and enjoyable. I am really looking forward to the next 30 years!"

After attaining his BSc(Hons) degree in Zoology at the University of Newcastle, and spending two years working for the Ministry of Agriculture, Alan began his career with Muntons in 1980 as a trainee Grain Buyer at Bridlington. He moved to Stowmarket in 1982 and became Stowmarket Grain Buyer for five years. He transferred back to Bridlington for seven years in the role of Grain Manager.

In 1994 Alan was promoted to the position of Grain Director and returned to Stowmarket where he has been based ever since. 1997 saw Alan promoted to Managing Director of Muntons Grain then in 2001 a Director of Muntons (Holdings) plc and Managing Director of Muntons Malt. He was then promoted to the position of Deputy Managing Director of Muntons in 2005 and to Managing Director in January 2006.
