Sad news that Robert, who has led Blind Veterans UK,(formerly St Dunstan's) for the last 13 years has died. Robert was a star. A giant of a man with a wonderful sense of humour I had a particular link with him. We were appointed to our CEO posts at the same time and through the same head hunter so we always kept in touch. And he loved the fact that our ACEVO weekly emails were called "Leader to Leader". I always ensured he was invited to all our ACEVO events and he was at the recent Lords reception where he met many of my family.
He was a superb leader; guiding the charity through change and re focusing the brand and purpose. ACEVO sends condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.
