Last week saw our team head out to wish PDT Director, Ian Downing, the very best for his upcoming retirement at the end of this year. Ian’s 40-year tenure at PDT and career highlights were well acknowledged and celebrated, but perhaps the most evident sentiment of the day was the love and high esteem that our entire team genuinely feel for this exceptional man.
Ian’s calm, intelligent and steady influence has had a profound effect on each one of our team and we will miss him greatly. A few tears were shed on the day along with many, many laughs as the lunchtime event stretched into the small hours of the next morning.
Ian, we cannot thank you enough for being such a generous, influential and important part of our team. We wish you weren’t leaving, but all the same time we are so delighted for you to be able to enjoy the fruits of your hard work and relax into the next phase of your life.
All our love xxx
The PDT Team
