Tributes have been paid to road safety expert Will Murray, who died suddenly from an undiagnosed illness at the weekend.
Throughout his career as an international occupational road safety expert, Murray, who was research director for eDriving Fleet, had seen more than a million drivers benefit from the results of his work.
Andy Cuerden, managing director of eDriving Fleet, said: "Our relationship with Will and his family extends over 20 exciting years.
"Yet even those of you who knew him only a short time or interacted with him briefly at a conference no doubt came away recognising the complex and compassionate genius he was.
"Everyone who came in contact with Will always enjoyed every minute they spent with him. His charisma and congeniality were unrivalled and his passion for our industry and saving lives was palpable in every conversation."
Cuerden added: "Throughout his accomplished career as an international occupational road safety expert, Will was motivated by a relentless passion for helping clients measure and maximise the impact of their safety programmes.
"It all started with our groundbreaking research study in the mid-1990s in partnership with Will while he was at the University of Huddersfield in the UK.
"As a direct result of Will’s efforts, fleet managers could accurately predict a driver’s risk and the related likelihood of being involved in a collision – a breakthrough in fleet risk reduction that allowed fleet managers to proactively intervene with training and support to help prevent collisions ahead of time."
In July, Murray completed a bike ride from London to Paris to raise money for Brake’s road safety and sustainable mobility efforts.
He leaves a wife, Marie, and sons Sam and Joe.
Details will be forthcoming regarding funeral arrangements.
