After 42 years of hardwork, commitment and dedication, Randolph Harris signed off from his last shift as senior sales manager of BICO.
During the company’s annual awards and dinner held last night at Savannah Beach Hotel, staff members who were recognized for ten, 15 and over 20 years of service joined executive chairman Edwin Thirlwell to toast Harris, a senior sports administrator who was described as the face of the well-known ice-cream company.
Harris joined BICO at the age of 22 in 1976 and worked his way up while exploring his passion and love for the game of football which he has help to mold locally and shaped regionally, as president of Barbados Football Association president and Caribbean Football Union and now as vice-president of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association of Football.
It was a bittersweet occasion that saw many with tissues in hand wiping tears from their eyes, as his former colleagues spoke highly of the man they call Adi Mi Daddy when at work.
Even though Harris is likely to take up residency as CFU boss in Jamaica, he will remain connected to the organization, as it was announced by chairman Thirlwell that the BICO board unanimously voted for Harris to become a director of the company.
The announcement was met with a rousing applause from his former colleagues who were delighted about the news.
