A Tribute to David Hopkins OBE

(UK) - We were saddened to hear of the death of David Hopkins OBE, following a long fight against bowel cancer. A well-known figure in the commercial audio marketplace, David was CEO of Stockport-based ADS Worldwide.

He was also a long-standing member of the Institute for Sound & Communications Engineers (ISCE) and the longest-serving member of the Executive Committee of PLASA (the Professional Lighting and Sound Association).

David first joined the PLASA Executive Committee in January 1995
following the merger with the Sound & Communication Industries
Federation (SCIF): he was then elected for a three-year term from
January 1996 onwards, and re-elected at every occasion since, serving as chairman of the Association in 2003, as well as holding the posts of
vice-chair (1996-97, 1999) and treasurer (1998-99, 2005-2009).

Matthew Griffiths, chief executive of PLASA, said: "We spoke on Friday
afternoon about an executive committee decision that was needed and,
typically of David, he was nothing less than supportive, encouraging and keen to play his part. He will be greatly missed by the executive, the association, the industry and all of us that worked with him."

David's funeral took place on Tuesday 25 August at Stockport Crematorium, followed by a Thanksgiving Service at St Georges Parish
Church in Poynton.
