On Wednesday, 18 October, 2017 Steve Suddath, Chairman of The Suddath Companies, announced the death of Quinn Bell. Quinn had been with the company since 1968 and its president and CEO.
“It was a much smaller Suddath in those years, with a few branches in Florida and southern Georgia,” said Steve. “Quinn quickly recognised the need for additional talent and, over the course of the next few years, brought in a combination of youth and experience with whom he superbly managed to grow Suddath from a regional player into an industry leader.”
“He not only provided inspirational leadership here at Suddath, but capably served as a highly respected Board member of United Van Lines (now UniGroup) during some of its most profitable and successful years,” Steve continued. “Quinn was a recognised leader in both domestic and international household goods industry associations. His good name and reputation were synonymous with the Suddath organisation.”
