The passing of Sir Howard Bernstein is a moment of profound loss and grief for his family and friends, and the City of Manchester.

A man of great integrity, intelligence, warmth and passion, Sir Howard was the greatest City leader of his generation. Working with him over the years has been an honour and privilege, as well as exciting and memorable, and all of us at Prior + Partners will continue to be inspired by his legacy and contribution to public life.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family.
