Announcement - Ray Stanbridge

Friday 23rd December 2022

We are very sad to hear this week of the passing of Dr Ray Stanbridge, who will be known to many of our members. Ray has advised the medical accounting industry for over 30 years and a corporate member of the IDF for many years. He was active as a lay member on the Finance Committee and Executive Board of the IDF at the time of his passing.

Ray was a Fellow of both the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants in the UK, Ray trained with KPMG for four years working in London, Paris and Ethiopia.  He later spent time as Head of Business Planning for an agri-business group in the UK.  In addition to his Leeds degree, Ray held an MSc from the University of Nottingham and a PhD in Economics from the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

Ray leaves three children and seven grandchildren, most of whom now enjoy and live in the sunny warmer climates of the southern hemisphere.

Dr Phil Batty, President of the IDF said: ‘Our thoughts go to Ray’s family and close friends. Ray was an exemplary servant to the IDF. I speak on behalf of my fellow Board members when I say we will miss his sharp observations and insight. Personally, I will miss his advice and counsel. This is a great loss to his family but also the IDF.’
