EOA urges EO community to contribute to e-book in honour of Nigel Mason

The EOA is encouraging those who knew one of the EO sector’s leading lights, Nigel Mason, to share their condolences, stories and memories that celebrate his life, with his loved ones through an e-book.  

Nigel, who sadly passed last week, was a close friend of the EOA, having worked on behalf of and for the EOA /Job Ownership, latterly as Policy Director.  

More recently, Nigel had worked in partnership with the EOA to publish the annual UK Top 50 and the EOT Survey – two key publications which have directly supported the EOA’s ability to promote and raise awareness of EO.  As an owner of RM2, he also led the firm’s engagement with the EOA as one of its Specialist Advisors. 

As a Fellow of Ownership at Work, he very recently led the design of schemes based on the EO model which were published as reports and have been used to both build relationships and influence key stakeholders including the FSB and HM Treasury.  A reminder of these can be found below:  

Deb Oxley, CEO of the EOA said: “The EOA team and board are extremely saddened by the death of Nigel, and we offer our sincere condolences to his family and colleagues.  Nigel was a huge support to the EOA team, offering all of us his wisdom and advice whenever needed. His innovative ideas around policy and share schemes has helped to influence policy makers and supporters, engaging them in the growth of the employee ownership sector.  

“Many of our members and stakeholders will have encountered Nigel at EOA events, which is why we urge those who have memories or condolences to contribute to the e-book. Unsurprisingly it already contains a wealth of heartfelt contributions.”
