Finance director at The Entertainer, Ashley Major has died aged 52 after a short illness.
Major was a valued and integral member of The Entertainer team, a member of the Board and a valued and faithful colleague who has served alongside the growing senior team for the past 20 years.
The industry personality began his career with The Entertainer in 1995 when he joined as office accountant. He was soon promoted to finance controller and later in 2007 appointed finance director.
During his time with the company, he saw the retailer grow from just seven stores to 105.
Major epitomized everything that was good about The Entertainer, growing with the business during 20 years’ service, he created a team that shared those values. Major’s knowledge, expertise, kindness and humour has shaped many aspects of the business it has become today.
Major will be sorely missed not only as a business colleague but as a friend to many people throughout The Entertainer, across the retail and finance sector. It would be an understatement to say he was fully committed to The Entertainer.
He was a family man, first and foremost, finding time in more recent years for an appreciation of life’s simpler pleasures – walking, photography – and, of course his love of cricket.
He leaves two sons and a daughter, all of whom made him very proud.
