    R.I.P John Bagshaw

    The last Australian to lead Holden

    From drive.com http://news.drive.com.au/drive/motor...628-214kc.html

    The last Australian to lead Holden changed the culture – and direction – of the company.

    Probably the only managing director of Holden who sported a tattoo on each arm at a time when only sailors and Hell’s Angels favoured body art, John Bagshaw was also the last Australian to hold the top job at Fishermen’s Bend.

    Bagshaw, who died this month just a week short of his 87th birthday, was an old-school salesman who brought passion into everything he tackled in life. He was also what the industry calls affectionately “a car guy”, a hugely complimentary description applied only to executives who live and dream cars.
    I had no idea he had reached such a great age

    Good innings Mr Bagshaw you did great things for Holden and will be missed
