– By Marc Sibbald –
It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Christopher Mullet, founder and publisher of ‘PowerTorque’ and ‘Delivery’ . I knew Chris for many years. First as an advertiser in Delivery then in a brief stint as a writer for Motoring Matters.
Chris encouraged me to submit my first article for publication in Delivery after I left SG Fleet in 2012 which lead to the creation of Fleet Auto News. His support and advice over the years made a significant impact on my journey as a motoring writer. The prayers and thoughts of the FAN crew are with Maree and the team at Motoring Matters.
Here’s the announcement from Motoring Matters Magazine Group.
Dear Friends and Industry Colleagues,
It is with great shock and deep sadness that I must deliver the distressing news of the sudden passing of my dear husband and business partner, Christopher Mullett on Friday last (7th August), due to complications following a routine surgery.
Chris lived for the transport industry and the wider automotive sphere, maintaining a role as an enthusiastic supporter and reporter of the industry, all the while living life to the full.
He worked hard but did so with an unfailingly positive outlook on life.
There were times when he could be tough and uncompromising, crossing swords with many in the industry. His passion for the craft put him at odds with some but he enjoyed spirited debates and was always considered good company by those who knew him well.
His passion for the industry was displayed in the product, putting heart and soul into his work as founder and publisher of ‘PowerTorque’ and ‘Delivery’ as well as the other activities of the Motoring Matters Magazine Group.
It is our intention to continue his work by publishing ‘PowerTorque’ and ‘Delivery’ October/November editions, with the temporary assistance of Alexander Corne as associate publisher. Our plans for the magazines going forward will be unveiled in due course.
The entire team at MMMG is devastated at the loss of my husband, our colleague and friend. We will dedicate the next editions to his memory, striving to deliver the quality product for which Chris had worked so hard.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.
Maree Mullett and the MMMG Team
