Tribute to Sir Ben Gill May 2014

It is with great sadness that Cawood Scientific heard on Thursday 8th May 2014 that our Chairman Sir Ben Gill had died after a long illness.

Sir Ben joined Cawood Scientific in January 2011 and during his all but too short involvement with our business we quickly recognised that he was a man of great intellect with a formidable grasp of detail, in particular the passion he held about the quality of the analytical work we do and the focus on providing a level of customer service that should be second to none.

He was a vocal advocate for Britain’s farming sector, and following on from his time as President of the National Farmers Union Sir Ben became a nationally-known figure as a formidable fighter for UK agriculture and a champion for British food.

Over the last three years he played a significant role in the forward-thinking and strategic development of Cawood Scientific and our business will continue to benefit for a long time as a result of the work Sir Ben put into our Company.

He will be greatly missed.
