Bob Hiskey, director and chief executive of Peta Ltd has retired after more than 42 years of service with the Cosham-based company.
He originally joined the organisation as a training officer in 1975, just five years after the firm was founded in Southsea.
Rising through the ranks, he became Peta’s top man in 1997 – a role which is now being taken on by Huw Chapman.
Bob said he would miss his colleagues, adding: ‘I am grateful to have spent nearly 43 years with this great company, and deeply honoured to have had the opportunity to lead it for the last 20 years. I am very proud of what we have accomplished during this time.’
