It’s a big day for Franchise Manager Derek Bullivant today, as we celebrate his 15 successful years in Blue and Orange! 

Derek began his DALROD journey as an Office Administrator back in 2006, under the Management of late DALROD founder, Walter Lane. 

Shortly after his efficiency to learn and excellence in initiative shone through, Derek was noticed by the team and offered the opportunity to learn the niche and art of working within Drainage CCTV surveying. 

Subsequently mastering and heading up the CCTV Department, Derek obtained his HGV license to work in the Tanker Jetting division, his diversity and knowledge around all aspects of our drainage works quickly expanding. 

Derek’s ambition and drive didn’t go unnoticed as DALROD Managing Director Dave Lane commented “I remember Derek joining DALROD 15 years ago, he soon became a valuable team member going above and beyond to learn and develop his skills within the drainage industry. “ 

“It’s great to see an employee work in different aspects of our business, to work their way through the different positions and develop into a key Management role within DALROD. We pride ourselves in laying down the pathway in developing our staff through the business, opening opportunities to acquire and develop their skills.” 

“Derek has been a valuable member of the DALROD team and helped play a large part in our growth and success in becoming one of the largest Drainage Companies in the UK. 

I would like to personally thank Derek for all his hard work, commitment and dedication to DALROD over the past 15 years” 

Our Directors Dave & Jo along with the Management teams support encouraged Derek to share his knowledge back in the office as an Operation Co-Ordinator. His quick thinking and enjoyment of problem solving saw him later to head up the Operations Team as a Manager. 

Throughout Derek’s journey he has learnt and understood many aspects of the business and so there was no better place for him than to be in a position to share that with the Management team and our DALROD Franchise network, as he currently holds the position as one of our Franchise Managers 

Speaking to Derek regarding his successful journey, he commented “I never could have imagined my success at the beginning of my DALROD career and I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge each day has given me. “ 

“I would like to thank Dave, Jo and all of the DALROD team for encouraging my professional growth and accomplishments. It is a pleasure today as a Franchise Manager, to have the ability to support, progress and flourish other professionals on their journey in becoming part of the growing DALROD Franchise Network” 

Today and always we would like to thank Derek for his dedication, hard work and excellence within DALROD and look forward to see him reach the next step in his impressive journey
