Stephen Anthony, who began his career at Al Shirawi on 11th February 1978, has decided to retire and go back home to India. Stephen joined the Al Shirawi Group working for its flagship trading division as an office boy after which he was transferred to Lunad Publicity as a helper. He learned welding skills at Al Shirawi Equipment and ended his career as at Al Shirawi Contracting (Interiors Together) where he started off as a driver and ended as a vehicle coordinator.
Stephen has 2 sons, one of whom is in Dubai working as an accountant and the second, Staminson, is in Germany studying for a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering. Staminson has been the recipient of an Al Shirawi Group tuition scholarship for 2 consecutive years while studying in Germany.
While his retirement was inevitable, Stephen will be missed by his colleagues across the Al Shirawi Group. He is pictured here on his last day at Al Shirawi receving a memento from Raj Pal Saran, General Manager of Interiors Together at Al Shirawi Contracting, along with Solomon George and Ani Chacko, managers at Interiors Together.
