Alps CEO Lee Riley passes away


Auto Legal Protection Services CEO Lee Riley has passed away after a battle with cancer, the business has updated.

Alps said in a Linkedin update: “With great sadness, we say goodbye to Lee Riley, who passed away after a long, determined and resilient battle with cancer.

“Throughout his time, with the disease and before, his positivity was truly inspirational. A much loved part of the Alps team for many many years. An engaging leader and a good friend to so many.

“We were his Alps family and we will miss him deeply. We will remember him with tremendous admiration and fondness. We will always think of his amazing positivity and we will wear a huge smile.”

Others took to the social media platform to pay tribute to legal expenses and motor solutions boss Riley, pictured.

Direct Insurance London Market marketing director Matt Field said: “The man who gave me my start in an industry I have grown to love working in and was the best of mentors sadly passed away on Monday night after a remarkably brave battle with cancer.

“Lee Riley was and remains an inspiration to me, I learned so much from him over the years and was proud to also call him a friend. You would struggle to meet anyone with a more positive outlook on every aspect of life.”

Helen Love, Thomas Carroll Group head of claims, described Riley as an “engaging, inspirational and respected leader and friend”.

Adding: “We will miss you Lee.”

Karen Beales, managing director at Financial & Legal Insurance Company, said: “Deepest condolences to Lee’s family and work colleagues.”

Nigel Allen, non-executive director, Total Claims Solutions, added: “Sad to hear this news and thoughts with Lee’s family, friends and colleagues at Alps.”

A Justgiving page has been set up to raise money for The Christie Charity in Riley’s honour, with five of his family and friends to run 100 miles each in May.
