It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely loss of our founder and chairman, Nick Edwards, who passed away on Friday, 11th of March after a short illness. Nick was a visionary who could address technical challenges and see the opportunity and potential to develop products which would overcome them. As a founder of Custom Interconnect Ltd. (CIL), and later of CoolLED Ltd., he brought those skills together to create companies which have been innovators and leaders in their chosen fields. At the same time, Nick took great pride in fostering this creativity in a working atmosphere which was both informal and friendly. Staff enjoyed working under his leadership. He will be greatly missed.
Prior to his illness, Nick put in place a new management team as he was planning to withdraw from daily involvement with the business to focus on his small-holding in Devon. This team is now well established and in a great position to continue what he started.
The company would like to extend its condolences to Nick’s wife and family.
