We are saddened to report that one of the University’s longest standing friends and servants, Dr Brian Woods-Scawen, died on Friday 8 June 2012.
Dr Woods-Scawen was appointed as Warwick’s University Treasurer in October 2006 and had been a member of Council since 2001. He has also served as Chairman of the University's Audit Committee, Chairman of the Arts Faculty Advisory Board and as a member of the board of the Arts Centre. But his association with Warwick dates back even further as he was a research student at the University from 1968 to 1971.
In 2004, he was awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award by the Institute of Chartered Accountants, and in 2008 he was awarded a CBE for services to business and to the community in the West Midlands.
If anyone wishes to send a note of condolence to the family, or to be informed of the funeral details once they are available, they should contact the Registrar's Office at registrar at warwick dot ac dot uk.
A memorial event will also be held later in the year at the University.
