VALE Ian Edwards

January 6, 2021 Obituaries No Comments

CT Partners announces with immense sorrow that Ian Edwards, General Manager of CT Partners passed away at Greenwich Hospital, NSW with family by his side on the afternoon of Friday 18 December. Ian was a very private person and had been undergoing treatment for cancer for some time but was only very recently diagnosed as terminal. While Ian had been given only a short time to live, the suddenness of his passing was unexpected.

Ian, an avid tennis player, prankster, music buff and passionate Richmond Tigers supporter, was born in Dandenong, Victoria on 13 February 1959 and joined the travel industry as a travel consultant with Thomas Cook in the late 1970s where he rose to become General Manager Australia.

When Thomas Cook Australia & New Zealand was acquired by Harvey World Travel (HWT) in 2001 Ian was appointed General Manager Leisure and it was through Ian’s intermediary that many previous Thomas Cook branch managers had the opportunity to become HWT franchisees. Ian’s involvement with CT Partners began with its formation on 01 July 2002 and he was appointed General Manager in February 2008 when it broke away from S8, who had acquired HWT in September 2005.

Ian was much more than a general manager and with his passing all of us at CT Partners have lost a special friend and cherished confidant and it is with profound sorrow that we convey this heartbreaking news.

There is little one can say at a time like this. However, a life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered and details for a celebration of Ian’s life will be shared once the current climate permits.
