After twenty years, yes TWENTY years, of working at Hillman Meat Company, Paul Sell’s thoughts have finally drifted off to images of himself and his wife, Sandy, on an endless holiday of fishing, boating and camping all under the clear-blue skies of Hervey Bay’s Fraser Coast. From next week, Paul will be leaving the cut and thrust of the meat industry behind to take the time to smell the roses.
If you haven’t met him, Paul is our Sales Manager, Manager, QA Supervisor, sometimes general dog’s body and every other position imaginable in-between. He has worked alongside me for the past years twenty years and seventeen years previous to that we worked alongside each other for my father, Brian. Admittedly, I was only a boy and there after school, Saturday mornings and school holidays, but Paul taught me my first skills as a butcher. Linking sausages, breaking bodies of beef, displaying trays and hundreds of other skills that made up the trade of a shop butcher in those days.
For the last two decades Paul has treated Hillman’s as his own and as a result our business has flourished. In over thirty years of working in the food service industry, his advice and product knowledge has influenced restauranteurs and chefs alike, and shaped menus across Queensland.
From myself and from those who have worked alongside you Paul, we hope you enjoy your retirement and thanks for travelling the same road……you’ve served your time at Hillman Meat Co!
