 The Greyhound Board of Great Britain is saddened to learn that Bob Stott passed away recently.

Bob was one of the original Directors when the Board was established in 2009 and made a major contribution to the greyhound industry in a difficult time for the sport, serving as Chairman of the Business Committee and as a member of both the Nominations Committee and the Budget Committee.

Chief Executive Barry Faulkner said, “From day one at GBGB I was the grateful recipient of Bob’s wise counsel and guidance.  However, his exceptional qualities as a shrewd businessman were far exceeded by his personal qualities, embracing the best human characteristics of fairness and kindness.”

I’m sure that his wife Margaret, son Andrew, daughter Elizabeth and all his family can take comfort from the high regard in which he was held.
