After 43 years of working for Picador plc, Andrea has laid down her calculator!
Having joined the accounts department in 1977 when she was employed by the founder of Picador, Lionel Jacobs, Andrea has seen many changes in the business over the years.
"When I joined, there were only around 40 staff and we had a 'bible', a book with the names of the every staff member, their start date, Birthday, etc. Now everything is computerised and we have numerous sites with a workforce of over 140!" Andrea said. "The company and the people have been like my second Family" she said.
