It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we have to inform you that our dear colleague and friend Ronald Kamphuis passed away yesterday. Despite the fact that he had been seriously ill for a long time, his death came sooner than expected and hoped for. Ronald was 48 years old.
During the last 3 years, Ronald fulfilled the role of Commercial Director and was a valuable member of our Management Team. In this capacity he was an important driving force behind the growth of Van Lanschot Switzerland. With his enormous drive, knowledge and network, he managed to boost the commercial successes of our team and as such, he was an example to us all. He loved his job and he enjoyed the contacts with his clients and his network. That never stopped for him, he was always available.
Besides being a commercial talent, Ronald was above all a very amiable and kind man. A great colleague, a dear friend and above all a loving husband and proud father.
We will miss Ronald indescribably, he leaves behind a big gap. We are very grateful for what he has meant to us, and possibly to you too, and we will never forget him. Ronald as a person is not replaceable. But we will ensure that his work will be continued by us in the same high quality manner.
Our thoughts are with his wife and daughter, his family and friends. We wish them all the strength in dealing with this intense loss.
Should you have any questions related to this message, please do not hesitate to contact me or one of my colleagues.
On behalf of the Van Lanschot Switzerland team,
