Former Today’s Group chief John Schofield passes away

Unitas Wholesale has announced the death of John Schofield who passed away earlier this week.

Schofield was formerly the acting managing director and finance director of the Today’s Group and was integral in the merger with Landmark to form Unitas.

John retired following the formation of Unitas. He developed a brain tumour and died this week following an illness.

John Kinney Unitas managing director, said: “I have tremendous respect for John, he was not only an excellent Finance Director but also a genuinely true gentleman and friend. I have very fond memories of my time working with John. He was instrumental in the formation of both the Today’s Group and also Unitas. John will be sadly missed and my deepest condolences go to Dawn and family.”
