RREF founding member and former Chairman, Nigel Kempner, passes away.Nigel Kempner

It was with sadness that we learned earlier this week of the passing of Nigel Kempner, one of the founding members and past Chairman of RREF.

Bryan Laxton, RREF Trustee shared the following words:

"Everyone involved with RREF is very sad to hear of the death of one of its founders and past Chairman.

In 2004 Nigel became the first Chairman of RREF following its creation by Professor Andy Baum and a few other visionaries. The first Chairman of any organisation is always a pivotal role and Nigel used all his immense charm and enormous energy to ensure that RREF was given the huge momentum which allowed it to flourish long after Nigel stepped down from the chair. Even after his time as chairman, Nigel continued to support RREF and give his time and energy and in 2015 Nigel was made an Honorary Patron of RREF to reflect his contribution to the charity over many years.

If it hadn't been for Nigel's commitment and enthusiasm, RREF would not be the recognised industry force it is today. RREF owes Nigel a huge debt of gratitude for his time, commitment and energy over many years."
