5 years ago, our Hummingbird successfully took flight for the first time. This was made possible by the brave decision of mr Dave Alcock, founding member of Kanu Equipment.
After several years of total commitment to the company, ensuring that our little Bird has continued to soar, Dave has decided to move towards another horizon.
Kanu Equipment hosted a dinner function at The Legends Lounge, Sun City, on Wednesday, 12 July 2017, in Dave’s honor to bid him a fine farewell and express our most sincere thanks. MD’s from all countries, our shareholder as well as international suppliers were present to witness this momentous occasion.
Stephen Smithyman, Group CEO of Kanu Equipment and Dave’s good friend, nostalgically recalled the moments of stress and joy that marked the birth of the company. At the end of his speech, he handed out a symbolic Liebherr 9350 trophy to a visibly moved Dave. Dave delivered a heartfelt and emotional speech, thanking all the guests for their presence, and many Kanu staff members for the role they played in making his time at Kanu Equipment a truly unforgettable one.
As sad as we are to see him go, we wish him every success on his new journey as we are eternally grateful to him for his invaluable contribution to the growth of our organisation.
Cheers (for now) to Dave !
