Today, we had to say a very sad farewell to our friend and colleague, Ken Beattie, who suddenly passed away earlier this month.
Ken was a trusted advisor to AutoRek for over 15 years, but more importantly he was a good friend to everyone in the company. He welcomed and helped nurture the careers of everyone at AutoRek, always available with a sound piece of advice about any situation along with a hilarious anecdote about when something similar happened to him. The news is still taking time to sink in and it will be some time before we realise that we wont be answering the phone to his cheery catch phrase ‘hi, hi, hi’ again.
Ken was a big character taken far too soon and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts are with Ken’s family and close friends at this very difficult time.
Each of us have our fond memories of Ken, but this is one shared by us all.
Rest in peace Ken, we will miss you.
