Peter Mark honours 75 employees for their long-standing service

Over 1,400 years of experience among those honoured.

Peter Mark, Ireland's leading hairdressing group, has today honoured 75 of its employees for their valued contribution and long-standing service to the company.

The Peter Mark Long Service Awards took place at The Westin Hotel, Dublin and recognised employees from salons across the island of Ireland who have worked at Peter Mark for 10 years plus.

Of the 75 honoured today, the average length of service was 19 years, but many were celebrating even more significant milestones with the company. Rosemary Reilly from the Newry salon celebrated 35 years while seven members of the team were honoured for 40 years of service. Among those receiving top honours were:

  • Linda Leavy (O'Connell Street, Co. Dublin)
  • Lilly Cummins (Rathmines, Co. Dublin)
  • Noeleen Gorman (Rathmines, Co. Dublin)
  • Joe Corrway (Bray, Co. Wicklow)
  • Tina O'Hagan (Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin)
  • Linda Caffrey (Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin)
  • Patricia Mulcahy (Wilton Shopping Centre, Co. Cork)

Collectively those 75 people honoured today have over 1,400 years of experience in the hairdressing industry ranging from stylists to support staff.

Peter Mark has been at the forefront of Irish hairdressing for 59 years. The first Peter Mark salon was opened by brothers Peter and Mark Keaveney in 1961 on Grafton Street. Their second salon opened to the public in 1964 and their third in Stillorgan in1966. The first unisex salon opened on North Earl St in 1970 and the following year they opened their first training centre at the same location. Today there are 71 salons across the island of Ireland and the company employs almost 1,700 people making it one of Ireland's largest employers.

Peter O'Rourke, CEO, Peter Mark said: "As a company built on people, today is an important day. Today we recognise those who have committed between a decade and 40 years of service to Peter Mark. This is a huge achievement and one that we are delighted to be able to celebrate with our talented team

As a company at the forefront of hairdressing in Ireland for the last 59 years, we know how important it is to attract and retain the best people. We place huge emphasis on nurturing the talent that comes through Peter Mark from the moment they walk in the door. We provide a lifelong career in the industry and we offer continuous professional development which is delivered through our world class training programme.

I want to congratulate all our Long Service Award recipients today and thank them for their commitment to our company. The future is bright as we continue to cultivate this precious talent for years to come."
