Paddy & Scott's shares success with team
Independent Suffolk coffee business Paddy & Scott’s has announced that all its employees will become part of a new company share scheme.
Founder and chief executive Scott Russell said achieving global success was down to the commitment and passion of their team.
“From the farm to the bean barn it's our people that make Paddy & Scott's awesome! We're ambitious, and really appreciate the time and energy everyone brings to the team. These are the real hero’s, the grafters the workers, the people that pick and pack boxes, take phone calls, knights of the road, account managers and everything in between. I’m honoured and proud to call them my partners, said Russell.
The company share scheme was the brainchild of Paddy & Scott’s brand director Jon Reed (pictured) and invites employees to become ‘equity partners’, giving them a share in the business profits, as well as taking a key role in the business strategy and development.
“Our team are Paddy & Scott’s heroes - they are very much part of the business, developing new product ranges, delivering exceptional customer service and playing a key part in the business. We’re proudly investing in our team as a way of rewarding them for their commitment whilst fuelling ambition for the future,” said Reed.
“Paddy & Scott’s are at the forefront of innovative business development, we’re a dynamic and inspirational team and it’s another strike for us in the worldwide coffee market.”
Martin Westhorp, national sales manager, joined Paddy & Scott’s team just two years ago and has seen an unprecedented increase in business.
“It was a proud moment becoming an equity partner at Paddy & Scott’s - it underpins the commitment of the company in recognition of a fantastic team.”
