CBI remembers David Shutts OBE

Rick Blackmore, CBI East Midlands Director, said:

“David was an inspirational leader - making a fantastic contribution without letting cancer diminish his ambition.  He was admired by everyone he came in to contact with and a brilliant advocate for East Midlands businesses. By founding his charity ASTRiiD, he helped people whose lives are affected by chronic long-term illness remain in the workforce - highlighting the value and importance of the invisible talent pool.

“David is not only a great loss to the CBI, but to everyone who knew him. I will miss him tremendously and I know many others will too.  My thoughts and those of my colleagues at the CBI will be with David’s family and friends at this very sad time.”
