Geraldine counts up 35 years with Cassons

Geraldine Spencer joined Cassons in 1979 and recently celebrated notching up 35 years at the firm.

She was just 18 when she joined and thirty-five years on, she’s the company’s administration manager at their office in Haslingden, and has seen the business go from strength to strength.

Geraldine says: “The company had just two partners when I started – now we have eight, and the number of staff has grown from ten to sixty.

“Our managing partner Les Nutter was a trainee chartered accountant when I joined!”

Starting with the firm as a secretary and receptionist, Geraldine moved into administration and spent time at Cassons’ Manchester office before returning to their Burnley office, which is now located in Haslingden.

One of the longest serving members of staff at the firm, Geraldine says the camaraderie of the team is the reason why she’s stayed with Cassons for so long.

“It’s a progressive firm and the staff are great to work with – many of the team have been here for ten, twenty, or even thirty years.” Cassons presented Geraldine with a bouquet of flowers at a special event attended by all staff and they will also celebrate her time with the business, along with the firm’s other long servers, at their annual Christmas event.
