Alphy Maginness, one of Townsend Enterprise Park’s longest serving Directors has decided to call it a day after 25 years voluntary service as a Director of one of Belfast’s oldest and most successful social economy businesses. Earlier this year, the company was nominated as one of Belfast’s Top 50 Businesses.
At a lunch hosted by Townsend Chair John Palmer held recently to mark the occasion, Alphy was presented with a commemorative impression of one of his favourite Belfast locations Cave Hill which was produced by Stephen Farnan Pottery, which is based in Townsend Enterprise Park.
Congratulating Alphie on his outstanding service, Chairman John Palmer thanked Alphy for his contribution to the business over such a long period of time and during which, there were many difficult circumstances.
“Alphy has always been a source of sound and timely advice” added John, “and his presence at the Board Table will be solely missed. We all wish him well for the future.”
In reply, Alphy said that he had thoroughly enjoyed his time on the Townsend Board. “It has been a very satisfying journey helping to take the business from small beginnings to what is now a very successful and well established business.”
“I wish Townsend Enterprise Park and its sister company Core-Vision every success for the future and I hope that they will both continue to make a contribution to the ongoing economic regeneration of the city.”
