It is with sadness that we share news of the passing of Blair Whitehead, a second-generation “retailer” with over a decade experience in the industry.

Blair began his career working with his father Ross in the Bi-Rite Group of stores in Melbourne, Victoria, while studying a Bachelor of Business, Retail Management and Marketing at Victoria University.

In 1996, Blair moved to Sydney to take on the role of brand manager marketing and NSW state manager at Parex, now De’Longhi.

Throughout his career Blair held national positions with Mistral International, ASKO Appliances, Sharp, Andi-Co and Laurastar Australia.

Blair is survived by his three children.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday 15 April at 11.45am, Springvale Crematorium, Boyd Chapel.
