Hansgrohe mourn the loss of a valued and respected colleague
Published:  20 August, 2010

ESHER: On Sunday 15 August 2010, Niall Geldard, national sales manager at Hansgrohe died tragically from a heart attack.


Aged just 51 years, Niall was a well-liked and valued member of the Hansgrohe UK team with sole responsibility for special key accounts.

UK managing director, Iain McKinlay, comments, "Niall was not only a respected colleague, but a personal friend for nearly twenty years. He did not smoke and led a healthy lifestyle - he regularly used the gym, played squash and was an avid golfer, which makes this news even harder to understand."

Mr Geldard married his wife, Jacky, just a few weeks ago.
