Jim Tyrrell, Freemans Event Partners Non-Executive Director
We are deeply saddened by the news that our good friend and colleague Jim Tyrrell has passed away.
Jim was a Non-Executive Director at Freemans Event Partners and a lifelong friend of the Freeman family. He had a huge influence on shaping the company into what it is today and was a guiding force for the business over the years.
Jim supported many of the Freemans Event Partners colleagues through the hardest times acting both as a mentor and a friend. Just last week, he was talking to the whole team at Freemans, encouraging people to grow professionally and personally.
Throughout his career, Jim held numerous high-level roles in the automotive industry in the UK and abroad. In 2000, he joined Mitsubishi Motors in the UK as CEO and remained in that position for 9 years. Lately, Jim was SsangYong GB Executive Chairman. He was also a business investor and carried out a number of Non-Executive and advisory positions in the automotive, engineering, consulting as well as the food and drink sectors.
Everyone at Freemans Event Partners will miss Jim enormously.
Our sincerest thoughts go to his family at this incredibly difficult time.
