Fin Pickard, son of Operations Director Robert Pickard, has just completed  a summer placement at LBBC Group. To compliment his degree in International Business Management, Fin was keen to gain some valuable work experience, learn more about the family business and in particular how the business development function operates across the Group.

For the first 3 weeks, Fin joined the team at LBBC Baskerville where he worked closely with Danny Burkle, Principal Engineer, assisting with business development activities and understanding the product offering. He also gained some valuable insight into the business’ marketing activities including database management, social media engagement and market analysis.

He completed his placement with the team at LBBC Beechwood.  Here Fin gained a better understanding of the services Beechwood offers including the capabilities of the new large CNC machine and supported the marketing activities around the launch of this new addition to our capabilities.

About his time at LBBC Fin said “It’s been great to find out more about my family business whilst gaining work experience at the same time. I’ve really enjoyed working across two divisions of LBBC Group.”

Howard Pickard, MD of LBBC Group said “We were delighted to welcome Fin, a 6th generation Pickard no less, to the business to see how it operates.  He settled straight in and I’m sure has some key takeaways that will help him successfully complete his degree at Northumbria University.”
