My sincere condolences to the team at Bowmans following the loss of Robert. It must be an enormously difficult time for you, not to mention his family. I wanted to let you know you’re in our thoughts.

Robert was clearly a Bowmans man to the very tip of his toes. From the brief time I spent in his company he was clearly one of the corner stones of the firm and a hugely influential leader. I know he’ll be missed greatly. At the same time, I’m sure he would take great comfort in the leadership that remains at Bowmans. I’ve no doubt that despite the very difficult times facing South Africa right now, the firm couldn’t be in better hands.
