50th anniversary of UILI

In Memoriam
Dr. Ken Albutt
7th UILI President 1990-1995

50th anniversary of UILI

On the 31st January 2012 the Union Internationale des Laboratoires Indépendants received the very sad news from Mr. David H. Stanger that Dr. Ken Albutt died in England.

Dr. Ken Albutt has been the perfect example of a business gentleman, generous with his time for the projects he felt passionately about, a great ambassador for the laboratory community. Now UILI has lost a valued colleague and personal friend for many of us. We have worked together in the interest of UILI and the international laboratory community from 1987 until last September 2011. On many events Ken has been supported by his dear Jane to events held on all continents of the world.

Dr. Ken Albutt was highly respected as President from 1990 – 1995 and as a long standing Board member of UILI. He distinguished himself by his diplomacy, friendly demeanour, and keen interest in advancing UILI’s interests leading to his Honorary Membership.

On September 16, 2011 he was still present in Paris, France as invited guest to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the UILI. We shall all miss him a great deal and our thoughts are with Jane and the family.
