He proceeded to express gratitude to everyone who he “crossed paths with” during his time at the company, including colleagues, clients and suppliers, remarking that it was a “pleasure” to work with them. Mr Tanti also thanked those people who “in some or many ways” helped him during the “good and not so good times”.
