Neville Registrars is sad to announce that its Executive Chairman, Brian Cox, passed away on Sunday, 22nd January 2023, aged 86.
Brian’s professional career spanned more than six decades: advising on takeovers, mergers and new issues at S G Warburg & Co, before moving on to become Executive Director of Barclays Merchant Bank and serving as Non-Executive Chairman of several fully listed companies.
In the early nineties, Brian acquired Neville Registrars and spent the last 30 years passing on his wide corporate advisory and legal experience to advisers and clients, growing the business and shaping the continuing development of the share registration industry, well into his eighties.
Brian will be sorely missed by his family, friends and the entire team at Neville Registrars – several of whom have worked for him for more than 25 years. Brian’s proudest achievement was the strength and depth of expertise of the team he built and he was actively involved in the business until very recently. Mark Hickman, Director of Neville Registrars said: “It has been a privilege to have both worked with and been mentored by Brian for over two decades. Words simply cannot describe how much his influence, support and personality will be missed.”
Brian is survived by his wife Alex, 5 children and 8 grandchildren.
