The Directors of Madeira have the sad duty to advise the industry about the passing of Ian MacPherson at the age of 85 on the 26th August 2021.
His wife Sara, aged 79, died of an unrelated illness just weeks later.
Ian played a critical part in the Madeira Group history as the founder of Madeira UK in 1983, firmly establishing the brand into consumer and industry arenas in that region.
Ian was MD of Madeira UK, working alongside his wife Sara, Company Secretary until their retirement in 2001.
They were well known and respected, making many contacts and lifelong friends.
Our thoughts are with all the family at this extremely difficult time.
