It is with great regret that we wish to announce the passing of David Coleman on Tuesday 13th May, 2014.
Many of you will know David and had the pleasure of working with him over the past 40 years.
He began his marine industry career as Sales Manager at RWO. In 1986 he purchased Barton Marine and transformed the company over the following 20 years into a truly global brand. In 1996 he was awarded MTA personality of the year and chaired several BMF committees, One of his favoured roles and one which gave him great pleasure was that of Chair of the BMF International Committee helping marine companies export all over the world.
He will be sadly missed by his partner Suzanne, the Barton Team and all of his friends within the industry.
