Rock Ferry Close Up: THANK YOU NICKY!

Thank You Nicky!

Thinking she was applying for a job in the kitchen of the about to open Rock Ferry Café, Nicky Thomas left that interview as the new Administration Manager. Now, around 10 years on, Nicky has decided it is time for a breather and a change in direction.

Over the years she has taken on total responsibility for the accounting and statutory requirements of Rock Ferry Wines including the cellar door and all four of our (now) vineyards. Nicky also handled and logistics and export functions for the company.

At the same time, she and husband Gavin raised three boys, managed a successful business providing fencing and irrigation for the wine industry, and have established a 16-hectare family vineyard in the Wairau Valley.

Nicky very much appreciates the opportunity Rock Ferry owners, Tom and Fiona, offered her back in 2011 which added to her previous business skill set and she has also enjoyed working with colleagues from allover the world throughout the years.

We wish Nicky all the best for the future and thank her for the huge part she has played in the growth and success of Rock Ferry Wines. Although she is relinquishing most of her Rock Ferry responsibilities, we are delighted she has agreed to continue to look after the accounting needs of our four vineyards. Thank you for your talents, energy, and contribution. We have all enjoyed working with you Nicky and know the friendships made will remain.
