David Forsythe would be the most worthy winner of the Employee of the Year at the Cumbria Family Business Awards on 9th March 2018
David is an Associate Landscape Architect with Stephenson Halliday and is hugely respected by all of his colleagues.
He leads by example producing work of the highest quality and has always been the most reliable, helpful, conscientious and well liked member of our team.
Over the past 18 months David has faced extreme personal challenges. In September 2016 David’s father Ken Forsythe a respected Lake District climber died after a short battle with cancer then only 18 days later his mother also passed away.
Just as David was starting to get back on his feet he received the news that his beautiful wife Tally had been involved in a horrendous crash where she was a passenger in a mini-bus resulting in multiple fractures. Over the past 9 months David has helped nurse Tally back to full strength and she has now returned to her position at Impact International.
Throughout this time David had also been caring for their young daughter Evie May who will soon be 2 years old.
Despite these tragic personal circumstances David has been able to continue his critical role in the business.
We cannot think of a more deserving winner of this award than David.
David is keen charity fundraiser and coordinated a ride from Lands-End to John O’Groats raising £20k for the Manchester Neurological Research Fund and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
His colleagues and the clients he works for would all cheer with delight to see recognition of this inspirational employee.
