In Loving Memory of

C Holland France cropped

Chris Holland

Chris, our much loved colleague, has sadly passed away. 

With over 28 years at Mercer, Chris’ contributions to our business and our people have been immeasurable.  And although Chris had many professional accomplishments and was very committed to his work, his greatest commitment was to his wife Lindsey and their son, Thomas.   

We all have memories of Chris, so please share your sentiments and stories about who Chris was, as a colleague and friend.  Your thoughts will be particularly valuable to Lindsey, Thomas and Chris’ family, as well as to all his working colleagues.  

As many know, Chris and Thomas were avid sailors and Chris would often tell of their sailing trips in Cornwall.  In honour of this, Lindsey & Thomas have asked, in lieu of flowers, for any donations to be made to the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI), mentioning Chris Holland of Portscatho & St Mawes Sailing Club and the Falmouth RNLI Station which he supported.  Here is a link: https://rnli.org/support-us/give-money/donate-in-memory/donate

I first started working with Chris when he was in the Sedgwick finance department, in Witham, and we continued to work together, off and on, for the next thirty years.  He was a great colleague and friend to me, always good company and a calm and wise counsel.  He was dedicated to Mercer and …

“Hiya!” In my mind I can still hear Chris saying this as he did at the start of all our meetings. Like many of us, I am finding it really difficult to believe he is no longer with us. It’s taken me some time to find the ‘right’ words to honour Chris and to …

Oh Chris! I will never forget when I was on crutches for what seemed like forever and after us having spent the day in a training session, you absolutely would not have it any other way than putting me in a cab. You thought I was bat crazy for even thinking of taking the …

I joined the Mercer finance team in 1989 (Noble Lowndes at that time). It wasn’t long before I got to hear about a new rising star called Chris Holland who had joined the finance team in Witham and was about to embark on his brilliant career progression. Chris was very driven, very bright and …

Chris was an incredible colleague. He offered a world of knowledge in a selfless way. He helped our firm, our teams and us individually. There were special times when Chris face changed and the calm, numbers-filled mind was suddenly replaced by a cheerful warm heart: when Chris talked about his family (yes you Lindsey …
