An office manager is celebrating after 20 years service with a Paisley based construction company, JR Group.

Kellyanne Conway is responsible for the day to day running and operation of the Group’s scaffold divisional office and marked the major milestone this month.

John Horne, Managing Director of The JR Group was thrilled to see Kellyanne reach the landmark, celebrating her two decades as a key member of the team. He said: “If I had a pound for every bit of positive feedback for Kellyanne over the last 20 years, I could’ve retired by now.

He said: “Kellyanne has become the heartbeat of The JR Group and is popular – not only amongst our team but with our clients and suppliers alike. She has a wealth of knowledge and is the person we all go to for help. She has become an integral part of the JR family, and I look forward to working alongside her for many more years to come.”

Kellyanne said: “JR Scaffold has grown so much in the 20 years, although has the same family feel it had in 2001. People laugh when I say I enjoy coming to my work, this is true as Johnny & Annemarie have made me feel like one of their family, they make everyone feel so welcome and we have a great team. I look forward to the next 20 years and what it has in store.”

Kellyanne scooped the Employee of the Year title at the Rocco Awards organised by Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce in 2010.

Annemarie Horne, Director of The JR Group added: “I can still remember the day Kellyanne started with our business in January 2001, aged 16. She has given her heart and soul to the business and will always be a part of our family. Many congratulations to Kellyanne on her commitment and long service in the business.”

The JR Group employs around 200 staff and was founded in Govan in 1995. It started as a scaffolding business and is now one of the largest building and construction firms in Scotland.
