(Pictured L-R: Fern Expo Charlotte GM Joe Fisher with Vest)
Congratulations to Vest who will be retiring from Fern Expo’s Charlotte operation on May 31 after 50 years with Fern Expo. He has been with the company for the past 45 years continuously after a short break in service in the ’60s.
“He started with Browder Decorating here in Charlotte in 1964 and left in 1969 to go to D.C. and work construction,” says Fern Expo Charlotte GM Joe Fisher. “He came back to Browder in 1974 (Browder was bought by Fern in 1999, I think) and has been with us until his retirement on May 31st.”
Prior to working for Browder he served in the Army for 4 years.
In retirement Vest plans on buying a fishing boat and spending a lot of time on the lake.
Fern Expo CEO/president Aaron Bludword expressed his congratulations on Linkedin as did several other Fern employees including national sales manager Tim Dever and senior account executive Diane Lallman, who wrote, “We’re going to miss you, Vest. Enjoy your well deserved retirement!!”
