In memoriam. Francois-Gabriel Ceyrac, Director of ICC National Committees and Membership
ICC Estonia so as the whole worldwide ICC family has lost its prominent leader and good friend Francois-Gabriel Ceyrac. We are shocked getting this news late evening yesterday.
It is with profound sadness that I have to inform you of the death of Francois-Gabriel Ceyrac earlier today.
Francois passed away in his sleep. His death has come as a great shock to us all and I trust you will join me in conveying our deepest sympathies to his friends and family.
Francois was nothing short of an ICC icon. His energy, drive and humour was a real inspiration to us all and he was dearly loved and respected throughout the organization. Francois spent over 30 years at ICC—most recently in the role of Director of National Committees and Membership—and he leaves behind an organization which is much stronger thanks to his tireless work. Francois played a central role over many years in extending and strengthening our global network and we are truly grateful to him for the legacy he has left behind. His intellect, charm and character brought joy into our lives and workplace.
I know that many of you worked closely with Francois and you will also have very many fond memories of him. We will all miss him greatly, both professionally and, above all, personally. The world is a little darker today with his passing. Should you wish to send written tributes, please do not hesitate to send these to me and we will collate them in a book of remembrance.
We will let you know further details about Francois’ funeral and remembrance services as soon as these are available.
With all best wishes,
International Chamber of Commerce
