Our friend and colleague, Alastair Gamage
It is with great sadness to share that at the beginning of April, Alastair Gamage, our Chief Finance Officer, suddenly passed away due to an embolism. Alastair had been at work on the Friday but sadly didn’t return the following Monday. His tragic and sudden passing was, and still is, deeply felt by colleagues across the business, and he is sorely missed.
For everyone that knew Alastair, this truly is extremely sad news to hear.
Alastair’s priority was his family, so proud of his wife Debbie and his three children, his Welsh roots, Welsh rugby, music nights at Ravenshead and a drink or two. He also loved working at SCAPE, joining the business in 2016.
With his ability to make people smile when he entered a room and his infectious laugh which filled offices and corridors at SCAPE, Alastair was very well-liked and highly respected by all his colleagues.
He also respected everyone, and he took time to know little things about his colleagues that personalised his relationship with them. He cared and put people at ease every day. His explanation of company finances was done in such a way that everyone understood and were inspired to keep working hard. He was passionate about SCAPE’s business growth and played a major role in the recent growth of SCAPE as a Group over the last six years.
Alastair was quite simply a true gentleman, who was incredibly knowledgeable, intelligent, and full of insight, all combined with a great sense of humour.
Family, friends and colleagues came together today, Friday 26 May, at his funeral to pay their respects and celebrate his life.
We have lost a colleague, a friend and a huge part of SCAPE, and he will be deeply missed.
Rest in Peace, Alastair.
