Robert He, president, Alpha Group has released the following statement:

“We have some very sad news to share with all of you. Mark passed away earlier this weekend.

Alpha has lost a passionate and creative manager, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Mark have lost a dear friend and an inspiring colleague. Mark leaves behind a business that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Alpha Group UK.

No words can adequately express our sadness at Mark’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. He was an incredible and unforgettable ambassador for our industry and proud of his association with many charitable causes including the great work of the UK’s licensing fund-raising body, The Light Fund and that of the toy industry’s charity, The Fence Club, of which he was a dedicated and loyal member.

We will honour his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

Yours sincerely,

Robert He

President Alpha Group.”
