The Latest from Expect


Phil McCourt Retires after nearly 20 years at Expect

Expect are very much going to miss Phil, a HGV Class 2 driver who has been with the company for over 20 years. Having decided to retire early and take himself to Spain, Phil is definitely going to be missed by everyone at Expect.

Andy Taylor, Operations Director at Expect commented on Phil’s early retirement. “I would like to thank Phil for the fantastic service he has given to Expect Distribution during his time here. Phil always approached the challenges of the job with a smile on his face, laugh and joking with not only the team here but with our customers who greatly appreciated this.  Phil has been a dedicated mentor for new Drivers for many years, showing them the ropes and the Expect way of doing things."

We wish Phil a long and happy retirement and the door will always be open for Phil to pop in and see his Expect family during his retirement.

Phil said at his send off last Friday “I had a really good send off last week. My time with Expect was brilliant, I really enjoyed my time with the company, the drivers were my friends and we had worked together for nearly 20 years, it was like one big family to me. It was unfortunate I had to retire early due to ill health, I would have happily stayed with Expect to my final retirement. I want to thank all at Expect for making me feel so welcome. Everyone is fantastic and I am going to miss them deeply. I want to thank not only Expect as a whole but Bob and Neil who made me feel very welcome at Expect throughout my whole career with them."

"Everyone always said, my blood is blue, Expect blue.” Phil McCourt
