Michael Darling

In Memory of our dear colleague, Michael

Michael joined the Policy team in Pinnacle Partnerships as an Administrator in July 1997 and went on to join the Policy Services team within Pinnacle when the two companies merged.

With a keen eye for detail, a gift for retaining knowledge and his approachable and supportive nature, Michael was the person you would go to if you needed to know something.

Reliable, methodical and thorough, Michael went about his work with a smile on his face and soon found himself picking up technical queries, leading to his most recent role as a Tester for the Policy team.

Michael worked across many key projects during the 24 years he was with Pinnacle and met so many people across the business, many of whom he became good friends with.

Michael was extremely well known, especially for his singing and happy nature, and was respected by his friends and colleagues.  He will be hugely missed by us all.

Please leave a message in memory of Michael.  These will be passed on to his family.
