Rolland Leslie Tasker.... R.I.P
June 22, 2012
Rolly who founded the company in Thailand over 20 years ago, died today after a long battle with cancer. It goes without saying he will be missed by many of our suppliers, dealers, distributors, clients and friends around the world.
A couple of months ago he requested I met him at his house in Australia and said that when he died he wanted everyone to know he was leaving the running of the company to his existing management team and to let everyone know nothing will change in the way it has been and continues to be run. His greatest wish is for the company to continue growing, supplying high quality products. We have supported Rolly in life and will continue to do so now he is no longer with us.
If you would like to take a look at the video link - Rolly Tasker Video - this short film gives a brief glimpse into his long and colourful life. He was 86 when he died and going very strong until shortly before he died.
He is going to be remembered as being a great sailor, entrepreneur, businessman and sailmaker by many. To those who he allowed to know him intimately he was also an outstandingly loyal and personal friend.
