The partners and staff of Aaron & Partners are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden death of Andy Duxbury.
Andy has been Aaron & Partners’ Chief Executive since 2006, one of a select band of non-lawyers at the helm of a commercial law firm. Aarons was established as a successful and respected firm by Julian Aaron and then Simon Carter (Andy’s predecessors as managing partners), and Andy consistently maintained and built on that good work with patience, commitment and good humour.
Prior to joining Aaron and Partners, Andy’s career spanned a variety of marketing and business development roles for other law firms and other industry sectors including the RAC, before becoming Marketing Director for Bevan Ashford and Business Development Director for Cobbetts. A graduate of Leeds University, he attended Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Blackburn.
Andy was generous with his time, enthusiasm and business acumen, serving as Chair of Cheshire Professionals and a member of Cheshire Business Leaders, as well as being an active member of the Cheshire branch of the Institute of Directors, of which he was Chairman for three years until August 2012.
Andy will be greatly missed by us all and our thoughts are obviously with his family.
Aaron & Partners thanks you for all of the heartfelt tributes and condolences we have received.
