Announcement: Stephen Cowan
April 22, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Stephen Cowan on Friday 17th April 2020.
Stephen served as Managing Director of Paltronics Australasia from its early beginnings. During this time, and in his former role as Miranda RSL General Manager, he made lifelong industry friendships. Stephen was renowned for his honesty and generous nature and was much loved and respected by all who knew him both personally and professionally.
Be assured that the Paltronics family will continue his legacy in the industry he loved so much.
Terri Cooper, with her extensive experience as Director and serving on the Paltronics Management Board, will immediately assume the role as interim Chief Executive Officer of the company.
We at Paltronics, alongside many industry friends, pass on our sincerest condolences to the Cowan family.
We have been inundated with so many kind messages from all of you and we can’t thank you enough. To quote Stephen: “It’s nice to know nice people.”
Steve will be forever missed!
