It is with great sadness that the TATOC board and team were informed of the sudden and unexpected death of industry veteran Ron Haylock.
Ron was respected by everyone involved in the industry for his positivity, knowledge and his wish to find a solution to the issues facing resorts today. His death on Tuesday evening has shocked all that knew and worked with him.
After a long and varied career which included roles as managing director of RCI Europe and chairman of the RDO, (Resort Development Organisation), Ron became involved with industry charity Christel House. He travelled extensively around the world, attending industry events and raising funds for Christel House schools in South Africa, India, Mexico and Venezuela.
Away from the industry Ron was non-executive director for several travel companies and chairman of the governing Council of the University of Nottingham in the U.K.
Ron's great passions were classical music, wine and the trees on his land at Dingley near Market Harborough.
Harry Taylor and the board would like to extend their condolences to Ron's family and close friends. He will be greatly missed by all.
