Position: Finance Director

Esther is the widow of Parkol Founder John Oliver and has always taken a very active role in the company. John moved to Whitby from Newcastle in 1971 and soon became a highly regarded member of the local community. He worked in marine engineering his whole life and was a recognised specialist on marine engines and engineering for the fishing fleet.

Esther founded Parkol alongside John. She spent more than 20 years fulfilling the role of company secretary and is now the company’s Finance Director.

I think the best thing about working at Parkol is the interesting variety of work we carry out, and also the lovely people we get to meet in the process.
