Smith Brothers firmly believe our dedicated sta play a pivotal role in the business’s continued success, which is why SBS look to recognise these achievements when they happen – especially during times of such uncertainly. Congratulations to Jeanette Clifton, Credit Control Manager, for reaching her 25-year service milestone. A true asset to the finance department, Jeanette plays a crucial role managing customer accounts and assisting branches setting up new accounts. This has been pivotal as the business has rapidly expanded (and continues to do so) over the years. Much has changed at Smith Brothers since Jeanette joined business when in 1995, the business operated just three branches at a time when just 1% of the UK’s population had access to the internet. We celebrate Jeanette’s contribution to the business and wish her many more successful years at SBS.
