Managing Director of ETSC Retires After Nearly 40 Years’ Service at Pittards

This week, Pittards wished good luck and farewell to Managing Director of Ethiopia Tannery Share Company, John Moriarty after nearly 40 years of loyal service to the company. John joined Pittards in 1974, working in the tanning department of the factory and was later promoted to Quality Manager. He left the company briefly in 1985, returning in 1988 initially as Overseas Technical Development Manager. During John’s time with Pittards he managed J&T Beaven, our chamois factory in Holt near Trowbridge, until Pittards sold this facility in the 1990s. He subsequently stepped into his final role as Raw Materials and Utilisation Director at Pittards and Managing Director of ETSC in Ethiopia. John’s commitment to the company through the years has been unwavering and Pittards would like to wish him the best of luck in his retirement.
