The Grosvenor Group’s CEO Shaun Barritt has died aged 64 after battling late stage sarcomatoid mesothelioma, a form of lung cancer.
He passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 6 with his family around him at home.
Having joined the business in 1984, Shaun worked his way through to becoming managing director, and more recently group CEO.
His vision, drive, innovative spirit and passion turned The Grosvenor Group into one of the most admired contract hire and fleet management companies in the sector.
Adopting an incredibly engaging management style, and sitting at his desk in the open plan office among everyone else, his energy and positivity, coupled with a huge sense of fun, was felt by those around him.
“He had a very natural ability to make everyone feel genuinely valued and appreciated,” said Nicola Johnson, chairwoman, “which is why Grosvenor is the ‘family’ that we are today.
“The role that Shaun played in making the Grosvenor Group what it is today will always be remembered, and full and proper tributes will be paid to his incredible legacy."
