Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Walter Hugh Malcolm Ross, GCVO, OBE, GCStJ, DL
It is with great sadness that the Board of Westminster Group Plc (AIM: WSG) has been informed of the passing of Lt Col Sir Malcolm Ross GCVO, OBE, GCStJ, DL.
Sir Malcolm was Westminster’s Chairman from 2007 and was an inspirational and supportive leader. Sir Malcolm was a true Gentleman in every sense of the word and a hard-working public servant. In 2017 Sir Malcolm moved to Deputy Chairman in order to allow more time for his public duties and yet he continued to devote considerable support to the Company.
Sir Malcolm was a former member of the Royal Household of the Sovereign of the United Kingdom, and from 2006, that of the Prince of Wales (retired March 2008). He was made an OBE in 1988 and joined the Royal Victorian Order in 1994 as a CVO. He was knighted as a KCVO in 1999, and advanced to GCVO in 2005.
He had been a member of the Royal Company of Archers since 1981, and a Freeman of the City of London since 1994. In 2006, he was made Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright. Until recently Sir Malcolm was also the Lord Prior of The Order of St John.
He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed by a great many people, not least all at Westminster. Our thoughts are with his wife Susan and family at this sad time.
