For over 17 years, Shirley McMillion has been an integral part of the Griplock Systems’ customer service team. As the Customer Service Manager, Shirley has guided a countless number of customers to the perfect cable suspension system to fit their needs. Now, Shirley has come to the end of her journey at Griplock and is retiring as of December 31, 2019.
“We wish Shirley the best,” states Todd Hemingway, President & CEO. “Shirley herself is irreplaceable, but she is leaving behind a dedicated team, led by Daycee Swain, to carry on the legacy of great customer service at Griplock Systems.”
Shirley started at Griplock Systems only 2 years after the company was founded. She has seen first-hand and been an essential part of the growth the company has had from its humble beginnings to the leader in cable suspension it is today.
“Shirley is the only person at Griplock that has been here longer than I have,” recalls Ryan Kwast, VP of Sales and Engineering. “It’s sad to see her go, but her retirement is well-deserved. We hope her all the best in her next adventure.”
Shirley has been not only a tremendous asset to our company but an enjoyable presence in the office, as well. While she will be missed by all of us at Griplock Systems, she certainly deserves her retirement. Her hard work and diligence have greatly benefited our company, and we hope that the remaining employees here will strive to follow her stellar example.
Her contributions to the daily operations, with the guidance she provided to the rest of the team, will be sorely missed. So, while we are saddened to see her go, we are confident that she will find the same success and happiness in retirement that she experienced during her time here.
Shirley, we wish you the best in your future endeavors. Retirement will surely offer you many new opportunities, which we know you will embrace wholeheartedly, just as you did at Griplock Systems.
Please keep in touch and visit often if you find that you have the time. We hope you have a fun and fruitful retirement!
