David Radcliffe, former chief executive of business travel giant Hogg Robinson Group, has died aged 67.
The Radcliffe family confirmed his passing on Saturday 4 July following “a recent deterioration in his health”.
Radcliffe joined Hogg Robinson in 1978 and went on to lead the largest management buyout of its kind in 2000, before taking the business public again in 2006.
He was chief executive of the group in February 2018 when the recommended takeover bid was received from Amex GBT. He continued to serve as a non-executive director of the combined business following completion of the transaction in July 2018.
Radcliffe was inducted into both the UK and US Halls of Fame for his achievements.
He leaves his wife Paula, two children Danielle and Mark, and four grandchildren.
