A Ballyclare bank manager received an award for long service at a celebration lunch recently, marking her 25 years with the company.

Mary Phillips, who is the manager of the Danske Bank branch in Ballyclare, has been working at Danske Bank, formerly Northern Bank, since September 1990.

The recognition lunch honoured over 190 Danske Bank staff, who together have almost 5,000 years of service between them.

Gerry Mallon, the chief executive of Danske Bank, was pleased that the long service of employees was being recognised.

“I am pleased to be able to take this opportunity to acknowledge and reward the loyalty of our staff over a period when they would have experienced significant change in both the banking industry and in our own organisation,” he said.

Danske Bank’s Long Service Awards celebrate the career milestones of staff with a minimum of 20 years service and every five years thereafter.
