On behalf of his family and Marshall of Cambridge, it is with the deepest regret that we confirm the sad news of the death of Sir Michael Marshall CBE DL. Sir Michael died on Saturday evening, while on holiday in Spain with his wife, Sibyl, and friends.
While it is too soon to confirm any arrangements, it is anticipated that there will be small, private funeral followed by a memorial service later in the year, details of which will be announced when they have been fixed.
For those of you who don’t know Sir Michael, he was President, former Chairman, former CEO and majority shareholder of Marshall of Cambridge Holdings, Marshall of Cambridge own 64% of our business.
Sir Michael was very fond of the Motor Group having personally ran it for over 40 years, his personal values around people and customer service are deeply embedded in our business today. He was incredibly proud of the business.
Our current CEO, Daksh Gupta expresses his deepest condolences 'on a personal level, I served on Sir Michaels Board for 8 years prior to our IPO in April 2015 and it was a privilege to work with him, words cannot describe my affection for him.'
Our thoughts are with his wife Sibyl and the rest of the family.
