Flextech chief executive dies
Monday 17 August 1998
In the space of 12 years, Mr Luard transformed Flextech from a small oil services company into the leading supplier of channels for the UK cable and satellite television market. His major coup came in 1997, when he snatched a deal to produce channels in a joint venture with the BBC from under the nose of BSkyB.
Mr Singer said: "Roger was an exceptional man who brought to Flextech a heady cocktail of charm, wit and entrepreneurial clear thinking that helped build this company."
Mr Luard is survived by his wife, Roly, and two children, Harry and Isabella.
