It is with great sadness that the Kirklees Branch and West Yorkshire Region must inform members of the passing of their Chair David Hodgson. David, MD Automotive Electrical, was a longstanding member of FSB. An active member for many of those years, he had been Chair for two years, reinvigorating the Branch and local membership.
As well as his passion for all things automotive, that he generously shared with colleagues and members when needed, David had a passion for working with young people, volunteering regularly for Young Enterprise and a keen advocate of apprenticeships.
David was always on hand and happy to help members and colleagues with his wealth of experience. His humour, friendship, dedication to small business and measured thoughtful approach will be sorely missed. Our condolences are with his family and friends at this time.
