Family request for memories:
Suzy’s family has requested stories, anecdotes and messages from all those who knew and loved Suzy as a colleague, client or friend. These will become pages in a book of memories that they can cherish in the years to come. To help coordinate this, we have set up one email address and will pass on every message sent to this over the coming weeks.
Please send through anything you would like to be included to: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘The Ferg’ joined us in 2003 as a graduate. With her combination of leadership and energy, she rapidly climbed the ladder. Clients loved her. Staff loved her. She made Partner quickly and went on to become one of the best-loved leaders in the business.
Love was something that actually defined both her work and her domestic life. She gave everyone she knew so much love.
This is what endures as a testament to her parents and family. You can’t pass on that amount of love unless you have it to spare. Our condolences and thoughts are with them at present. Our thanks for Suzy will be with them forever.
It was no surprise that Suzy gravitated towards finding, nurturing and retaining talent. Many of our most brilliant people came from her ability to spot ‘one of us’ and to ensure they got the most from the training structures she herself developed.
Suzy was diagnosed about two years ago with an aggressive form of cancer. Typically, she went through the surgery and chemotherapy with a cheerfulness that was an inspiration.
Any company is the sum total of the personalities it attracts. Foremost among ours was the inimitable Suzy Ferguson. Her contribution to our lives is one of her many legacies that we will treasure.
The company once had account teams named after London Tube stations. Suzy named her team ‘The Angels’ for their Islington origins.
Tonight, the light in our world is diminished. We draw strength though that in another, the light is more radiant as Suzy joins a new team of angels.
