Obituary: Quinn Bell

Jan 12 | 2018

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.”
