It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague Colin Kershaw.
Colin joined Brookes Bell in 1990 and became a Partner in 2002. Before joining Brookes Bell, he worked in the Port of Liverpool for 15 years and was Assistant Marine Operations Manager for the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company.
Colin spent more than 30 years working for Brookes Bell and was instrumental as Managing Partner in overseeing the growth of the modern, global company Brookes Bell is today.
Despite his best efforts, Colin never really retired from Brookes Bell and was still asking about the firm’s progress during a recent zoom meeting; he loved to hear about the goings on in the firm.
Colin was a remarkable man who not only leaves a lasting legacy on Brookes Bell but maritime life and business in general. He will be hugely missed by everyone.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with Colin’s family and friends.
