We have received the tragic news that David Burns of Speedy Powered Access passed away this weekend.
A company announcement said: “It is with great sadness that we are announcing the passing of Powered Access regional manager David Burns. Whilst David has only been with Speedy for just over 12 months, he has many a friend among us both from his previous working life and since joining us.”
“We will continue to support his family through this sad time. Please keep David’s family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.”
David Burns began his career with a Saturday job working for Enigma Retail working at a shopping centre. He joined the company full time and worked his way up through the ranks over a three year period to become a restaurant manager. He moved to Martin McColl’s as a cost controller in 2004, and then three years later entered the powered access industry working with AFI, initially as a depot operations/hire controller, but was promoted six years later to regional operations manager for the London region. Last June he left AFI after more than 13 years to join Speedy Powered Access as regional manager for the Southeast Region.
