They say that in life it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with. And at John Horsfall; the travel companions are changing.
The airline textiles supplier has bid “Bon Voyage” to Sales Director, David Deakin, who retires this month after 23 years in business. A familiar face to many in the global aviation industry, David began his career at the renowned UK firm in 1996, bringing expertise from the world of textile chemistry and technical textiles.
Quickly moving up the ranks in the 150 year old family business, David became Sales Director, and the right-hand-man to M.D Peter Horsfall-Benson. “David forged relationships with airlines worldwide, helping me to grow the John Horsfall business in the Middle East and USA in particular. He’ll be sorely missed, but we’re pleased to see him taking some time to relax, although I don’t suppose it will be long before he’s globetrotting again.”
