Vale Nick Greenfield
It is with great sadness that we have been informed of the passing of AIG co-Chairman and ETOA's Head Of Tour Operator Relations, Nick Greenfield. He had been ill with cancer for eight years and had worked continually until last week.
After freelancing for several years, Nick joined ETOA full time in 2010 as Head of Tour Operator Relations. Having run the London office for NETC, Nick had experience of operations and also worked as a tour guide. Guiding was an abiding passion; he went back on the road at least once a year.
Nick, Peter Muttitt and made Managing Director Jonathan Mountford took on the task of Chairing the Americas Interest Group (AIG) way back in March 2012. During that time the majority of the amazing guest speakers sourced were a direct result of Nick's hard work and huge network. Nick loved the opportunity to host the meetings and to lead the group in questioning these guests.
Nick was courageous to the end Chairing his last AIG meeting less than three weeks ago.
The industry has lost a mine of information and a stalwart defender of its interests. His friends and colleagues have lost a great and gentle companion. Further announcements concerning funeral arrangements will be made in due course.
