End of an Era

December saw the end of an era at IBS with the retirement of Administration stalwart, John Henderson.  John joined us in 1991 and has been an integral part of the IBS staff.  Originally from the Netherlands, John moved out to Australia in 1973 and was instrumental in opening Contiki Travel Australia where he stayed for 13 years before needing a break from the big city when he jumped in his car and found his way to Innisfail.

His association with IBS began when he came in one day to install the first computer system, unfortunately it proved far too perplexing and he was asked to stay on permanently to manage the computer system and the finances.  We asked John for his thoughts on his time at IBS and his plans for retirement.

“I’ve been here for 20 years over which period I’ve met and worked with some wonderful people and have made some lasting friendships.  But now I’m looking forward to retirement and hitting the road again after a 23 year    stop-over in Innisfail.”

Managing Director Bill Seawright said, “I would just like to thank John for his years of service and his contribution to IBS and helping it grow to what it is today and I wish him well with this next stage of his life.”

All of the staff here at IBS wish John the best in his retirement!
