DISSERTATION DETERMINES DESTINY

 

A mechanical fitter from Hull has secured a challenging new position as business planner with a major company on the basis of his university degree dissertation.

 

For the last five years Gary Fee (40) of Leads Road in Hull, has been studying a part-time BA in Administration Management at the University of Lincoln’s Hull Business School whilst working at Logan Fabricom Ltd.

 

“I chose the BA in Admin. Management because administration forms an important part of any business transaction,” said Gary.  “I wanted to be aware of the legal implications and how and why business decisions are made.”

 

Entitled “An Evaluation of How Facilities Management Can Contribute To Maximising The Benefits of Logan Fabricom’s Organisational Assets”, Gary’s dissertation looked at the use of office facilities within the company.

 

“I have been working with the company since 1990 so it was an ideal situation for me.  I carried out the evaluation and, just for information, forwarded a copy of the dissertation to the managing director.

 

“The managing director, after discussing it with the operations director, decided to talk further with me about the content, its benefits to the company and future implementation.

 

“We then discussed my position in the company and - owing to the retirement of one employee and the movement of another employee - I was offered a new position of business planner which combines the roles of both jobs.

 

“As business planner I will forecast the effect of sale enquiries on the business’ resources should they become contracts and overseeing contract administration.”

 

Logan Fabricom Limited design, manufacture and install materials handling conveyors and sorting systems for industrial parcel handling, airport cargo and passenger baggage applications.

 

Gary’s graduation ceremony will take place at Hull City Hall on Wednesday 31st July at 11.30 am.
