alex-smithAlex Smith – Visa Consultant

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our colleague Alex Smith, who passed away suddenly at home on Sunday 8th November. Alex was also a dearly loved Husband of Jean and proud and loving Father of Christina and Phil.


Alex joined Colpitts in 2000 and was one of the longest serving members of our European team, based in our Edinburgh office.  Throughout Alex’s time with Colpitts he worked in Sales, Administration and for the last 5/6 years he managed our Visa department.  As a Visa specialist his knowledge and expertise were invaluable and appreciated by clients, suppliers and staff alike.


In December 2014 Alex was diagnosed with cancer, which he bravely battled and won. He returned to work in October, before announcing his retirement in early 2016.


Alex was a true character in Colpitts and he is going to be deeply missed by every one of us.
