We are saddened to report the death of our long term Board advisor and mentor, David Brooks who died on 13th July after a short illness.
David was an inspiring character and well loved at Bishopsgate, not just for his long standing experience in M&A but also for his wonderful, positive personality. The Bishopsgate team referred to David as the “headmaster” and he took great pleasure in mentoring the younger members of the Bishopsgate team.
David spent most of his career at Grant Thornton where he was responsible for building a large corporate finance practice becoming Head of M&A for GT London. David specialised in the healthcare and food sectors and his experience and “black book” will be greatly missed.
David lived life to the full and he was great fun to work with. We all send our best wishes to his wife, Wendy.
