Martin Ward, Chief Executive Officer of Redde Northgate plc said: “Steve’s wisdom, corporate knowledge and sense of humour were stand out features that defined him. He made a significant contribution, particularly to the Redde business, and many of the directors worked closely with him over a long period of time. We will miss his sharp mind, intellect and more importantly his friendship. On behalf of Redde Northgate I extend our sincerest condolences to Steve’s family.”
