Dr Richard Sykes

Our friend and colleague Dr Richard Sykes sadly passed away on Tuesday 24th September 2019. He had a heart attack at home in Islington, and his wife Penny was with him at the end. Richard was a chemist at ICI before he was asked to be their CIO, eventually becoming Global VP of IT. A scientist who applied his considerable intellect to the business of technology, with a clarity of thought and expression, and ideas that were ahead of the curve. We all enjoyed Richards cheerful and optimistic outlook, his wide and eclectic interests and visionary perspective, he will be deeply missed by all his colleagues at the Cloud Industry Forum and our heartfelt sympathies have been extended to his widow and family.
