George Sadly Dies at 73

Industry veteran David George has sadly died at the age of 73. As a founder of former Crane Distribution and more recently Chairman of Pragma Distribution David was a prominent figure in the channel. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Ian Hunter, Editor of Comms Business said “I had a long association with him stretching back to the 1980’s in the early days of the channel and have to say that in all my dealings and meetings with him over the years he was always the gentleman.”

Miles Bossom, CEO of Miles Publishing stated “It’s a sad day for the Channel, I knew David for a long time and he was one of the nicest most genuine guys I have ever met. He won our Lifetime Achievement award back in 2008 which really demonstrates the respect and adoration the Channel had for him and the work he has done. He will be missed.”
