Trudy re Pat

Toronto Sun promotions vet Pat Surphlis was shown the door in November after 25 dedicated years on the job, but she has not been forgotten.

Trudy Eagan, a 28-year Toronto Sun vet who retired in 2002 after working her way up from secretary to executive vice-president and chief administration officer, tells TSF in an e-mail this week:

"I was very sad to learn that Pat Surphlis is no longer a member of the Sun Promotion Team. Pat always gave 100%, worked any hours required to get the job done, and did it with a smile on her face.

"Not only was she a big asset on the promotional side of the Sun, but she also totally understood the business side and ensured that every deal made had to make sense to the bottom line.

"She is well respected by everyone she has dealt with (both inside and outside the Sun), and it is my hope that Pat will end up in a position where she will be able to continue to utilize her considerable talents.

"I know there will be a line up of people more than happy to sing Pat’s praises to her next employer.

"And another chapter ends at 333 King St. East."

Thank you for your e-mail, Trudy. Pat's work ethics and effervescence mirrored the overwhelming spirit of employees at the Little Paper That Grew.
