28 July 2019
Sir Michael Marshall CBE has died while on holiday in Spain. Sir Michael, grandson of Marshall Motor Group founder David Marshall, was a chairman of the business.
Commenting on Sir Michael’s passing, CEO of Marshalls, Daksh Gupta said: “Sir Michael was instrumental in recruiting me in 2008. I had the privilege of working with Sir Michael for eight years on his board prior to the IPO of Motors in 2015. He was a true gent. He gave me the backing and support to grow our business into what it is today. I am truly gutted.”
A statement issued by Marshall of Cambridge said: “Sir Michael died on Saturday evening, while on holiday in Spain with his wife, Sibyl, and friends. While it is too soon to confirm any arrangements, it is anticipated there will be a small, private funeral followed by a memorial service later in the year, details of which will be announced when they have been fixed.”
