Sue Grist

As director and founder at Egremont International | Stone & River, Sue was our founder, mentor and friend as well as an incomparable consultant. She very sadly passed away suddenly last year.

Sue saw the company as an extended family and she was an inspirational mentor to all of us. Constantly innovative and creative, Sue was passionate about retail and leisure and during her stellar career worked with many of the leading brands both in the UK and internationally. She took great pride in building strong relationships with clients and her wider network, and we always admired how she was so highly respected throughout the industry: many appreciated her counsel, intelligence, energy and humour.

Having relaunched Egremont in 2016, it was always Sue’s wish for the team to take forward the business in time as Stone & River. We have subsequently taken time to reflect on how important she was to us both as a team and for our individual development and support, and ensure this is at the heart of how we build on her legacy.

As we move forward as Stone & River, our approach is rooted in Sue’s values and all that she achieved. We feel proud and privileged to have learned so much from her.
