IN MEMORY OF BARRY BREED

In February 2023 our hearts were shattered following the sudden loss of our colleague and friend Barry Breed. 

Barry was a wonderful, influential and charismatic figure in our industry. His death is a great tragedy and he will be deeply missed by so many.  

We feel so privileged to have known and worked with Barry over the past few years. He possessed a kind, caring and ambitious spirit, coupled with an infectious love of life, the industry and people. He was truly one of a kind.
