This month we have a very special premiere at ibc AG: our first retiree.
Our longest-serving employee John Smeekes, who has been with ibc AG since its foundation in Germany in 2009, was part of the IT-Services department and successfully helped our customers implement new ideas and requirements in many different projects.
John said on leaving “I, as one of the Dutch border crossers, have always felt comfortable with my Dutch, direct manner and humour at ibc AG with its German thoroughness – the many years of successful cooperation also prove this.”
A farewell like this is always difficult, even more when you have to say goodbye to someone who has always been there.
But we wanted to celebrate the farewell properly once again, despite the cautious post-pandemic times, and surprised our John without further ado with a dinner with long-time companions in Aachen.
It was a sociable evening and we will miss John very much!
But if there’s one thing you’ve earned – it’s your retirement!
All the best, dear John! And please come and visit us when you are in Aachen or Hamburg 😊
