On September 20th, 2017, Ashfield US hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception to commemorate the opening of our new location in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.
In attendance were UDG Healthcare, Board members: Peter Gray, Brendan McAtamney, Alan Ralph, Chris Brinsmead, Gerard Van Odijk, Lisa Ricciardi, Linda Wilding, Philip Toomey, Nancy Miller-Rich and Myles Lee. Also in attendance were the Ashfield US senior leadership team and several hundred headquarters-based employees.
The event kicked off with remarks from Peter Gray and the quintessential cutting of the ribbon. The ceremony took place in the open space offices on the second floor of the building.
After remarks, employees were welcomed to a luncheon, complete with Ashfield cake, dessert shooters, and mingling.
The event follows what has been an exciting year here at Ashfield in the US. From completing the multi-phase move in March, to recent acquisitions and business successes – there was plenty to celebrate. The addition of two new senior leadership members and launch of a realigned senior leadership team brings a wealth of expertise and inspired vision to our growing presence in the US market. Sharing this event with the Board was a fantastic way to herald a new chapter in the story of Ashfield.
Thank you to all who helped make the move possible and to Ashfield Meetings and Events for pulling together a memorable occasion.
