SGS Gala

In 2010, Simon and Damian George celebrated 35 years in business together, leading Simon George and Sons through a period of great growth and change.  From working with their father, Simon at West End and then the Rocklea markets, Simon and Damian have overseen the development of state of the art facilities, delivery methods and new technology and the establishment of operations in several new territories.

The brothers toasted this milestone by hosting a gala event for their staff, family, clients, fruit and vegetable industry partners and friends who had supported SGS on its journey.  Awards were also presented to a large number of long serving staff – many of whom had spent almost as much time with the company as Simon and Damian.  Particular recognition and appreciation was extended to these valued staff on the night.

The evening culminated in a surprise presentation by Ben and Jack George to Simon and Damian – for their own long service to the company…  It was a night of great fun, wonderful memories and nostalgia, commemorative videos, tremendous entertainment, music, fine food and wine – including, of course, outstanding fruit and vegetables…

While the SGS Gala was a landmark celebration – staff recognition, credit, thanks and indeed fun and celebration plays an important, ongoing role in the business and forms part of our culture and values.  It is a means by which the SGS team is strengthened and shows its appreciation for the hard work of the  people that enables our operation function as successfully as it does.
