Much-loved Finance Manager signs her last PO and heads to the beach


Last Friday we said a sad goodbye to our much-loved (and at times, feared 😊) Finance Manager, Helen Klasinski, who is ‘not-so-sad’ to be retiring.

Helen joined the Porterhouse family 8 years ago and the company would not be in the position it is today without her drive, energy and can-do attitude.

Diana Aspinall, Senior Finance Assistant from Helen’s team, summed up how she and her colleagues felt:

“We would like to say a huge thank you to Helen for all her support, knowledge and friendship over the past few years. She is the best mentor we could have ever hoped for. She is wonderful, hardworking and fun – a true inspiration!”

It was a bittersweet day as we gave Helen a fun send-off both virtually on Teams and later at the Market House in Reading. It was fabulous to see everyone, including old work friends and new members of the Porterhouse family.

Good luck in your next chapter, Helen! We will miss you and look forward to hearing tales of all your travels and adventures!
