Tough but always fair

Published:Friday | May 22, 2020 | 12:14 AM

THE EDITOR, Madam:

OLIVER CLARKE was a sharp mind and a visionary. A shrewd businessman who executed precisely and effortlessly, he was tough, but always fair. In his presence, you had to be touched in some way. His mentorship was a gift. His dry sense of humour could defuse the most tense of situations. He was always in control, and always a step ahead.

His impact on people and on the many businesses he touched was profound. I will miss his impatience for things that took too long to conclude, the guidance that sometimes seemed impossible but yielded superior results, the cookies travelling from across the desk, the random story and joke. He will be deeply missed.
