Vale Ron Klein

It is with great sadness that we advise that our esteemed colleague, friend and founder of TKP, Ron Klein passed away on Wednesday, June 26th 2019. A statement from the company follows.

It is with great sadness that we wish to inform friends and clients of TKP of the tragic and untimely passing of Ron Klein.

Ron was TKP’s founder and a mentor to the team, but more than that he was our friend and will be sadly missed. His kind do not pass this way often.

Whilst Ron’s day to day involvement in the business had reduced over the last few years, his passion for TKP remained as strong as ever. It was Ron’s wish that the business continue for another 28 years; the remaining Partners and staff fully intend to honour that wish.

As we talk to you personally over the coming days and weeks, we look forward to sharing stories and memories about Ron with those who knew him.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Judy and the family.

Simon, Richard, Mallory and the TKP team.

If you wish to contact Simon, please send him an email at

AMSRS offers our condolences to Ron’s wife Judy, his family and colleagues.

A full obituary will appear in the next edition of Research News.
