Mr Derek Mickel

It is with great sadness that we confirm the death of our former Chairman, Mr Derek Mickel.

He was 79. He died suddenly while on holiday in Fuerteventura on Saturday 15 November and our thoughts are with his family at this most difficult time.

Known affectionately and respectfully by all as ‘Mr Derek’, he was a vital part of Mactaggart & Mickel team for over 50 of the 89 years we’ve been in business; a remarkable achievement and an unmistakable indicator of his commitment and passion for the company where he knew every employee by name.

He leaves behind a lasting legacy as a real champion of the housebuilding industry and a much loved and greatly missed colleague.
