Statement on the Passing of Mr. David Gardner

The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) deeply regrets to inform friends, colleagues, and partners about the untimely death of Mr. David Gardner earlier today.

This news is shared with an overwhelming sense of loss and sorrow.

David had a long and distinguished career at the Financial Times, where he was one of the preeminent journalists and international affairs editors of his generation. At IFIT, he served with dedication and distinction for many years as President of the Board of Directors. He was an extraordinarily thoughtful and decent man, whose intellectual contributions elevated us all and whose memory and legacy IFIT will honour in perpetuity.

The IFIT community extends its deepest condolences and sympathies to his beloved wife, children and other close family and friends for this heartbreaking loss.
