    Bob started as a shop assistant

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural.

    Bob started as a shop assistant and gradually made his way to the upper echelons of the company. Called "Uncle Bob" by his colleagues, he now travels around the world promoting a new image of the company.

    Re: Bob started as a shop assistant

    I'd use "the company's new (corporate) image" instead of "a new image of the company" in that sentence.
