Robinson had been involved in ACFO for more than 20 years, including time as a board director and five years as chairman of the north west region. Along with fellow ACFO director Julie Jenner, he was working on the launch of a major new marketing campaign for the organisation. ACFO chairman Tony Leigh said: ‘John was one of the driving forces behind our new campaign and its imminent unveiling and launch will be a testimony to him.
‘It is tragic news. He was a highly valued member of the ACFO board and a personal friend. His interest, professional knowledge and commitment to UK fleet activity will be sadly missed. The organisation extends its sympathy to his family.’
He is survived by his wife Maria.
