Nigel Kempner had long been a friend and was intensely loyal.

Nigel Kempner

Everybody here is in shock as plans were in full swing for his return to the office in the new year and for developing his strategies for WELPUT and his emerging role at GreenOak (03.02.17).

He touched many people here with a kind and generous spirit, finding time to show a real interest in their careers.

On top of a prolific professional career, we shouldn’t forget his public roles, his pride as a liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Paviors and the huge contribution he made to charitable efforts.

Our thoughts are with his wife Ros and daughter Natasha, who also worked with us, and our friends at Grafton Estates. We along with his many friends and colleagues will miss him enormously.
