John Barrett formerly of the AA.

I have learned this evening that a former business colleague of mine whom I regarded very highly died on February 7th. John Barrett had a long and distinguished career with the AA and worked with me at the SMMT. He was a member of The Turf Club.

He was a consummate networker and knew everyone. I vividly remember him being approached at a corporate event at the Oval and being asked exactly what he did to which he replied “I am the Director of Fun.” Needless to say there was very much more to him than that.

I  enjoyed working with him, enjoyed his company and respected his advice and above all I shall miss him.
