Ian Sully, former Managing Director, AUMA Actuators Ltd



It is with deep regret that the AUMA Group announces the death of Ian Sully, a former Managing Director of its UK subsidiary, AUMA Actuators Ltd.

Ian passed away on 15th April 2016. He was a devoted husband to his wife Lindsey and loving father of two sons Kyle and Callum. He was passionate about his work for AUMA: he joined the company in 1985 and, after a short break from the organisation, he returned as a Technical Sales Representative. Ian was promoted to Sales Manager of AUMA Actuators Ltd in 1992, and subsequently to MD in 1996. From 2011, he continued his support for AUMA in a technical and sales advisory capacity.

Everyone who knew Ian was impressed by his knowledge, expertise, commitment, energy, passion and wicked sense of humour. He was extremely driven, and his achievements extended beyond growing AUMA in the UK, where his support to staff and customers was second to none.

He achieved many sporting accolades including Iron Man events, where his infectious enthusiasm led to many colleagues being persuaded to participate and large sums of money being raised for charity.

Ian will be sadly missed by his family, colleagues and customers.
