Remembering Michael Hislop – Co-Founder The PA Club

We are much saddened by the news of the recent passing of Michael Hislop, Founder and Managing Director of The PA Club.

Michael lost his battle with Covid related complications on 23rd November.

He leaves behind his partner in life, love and business, Charmian Hislop and Ben, the son of whom he was so proud.

Further to his career in publishing and exhibitions, Michael started The PA Club in 2005, growing their community into a well-established brand throughout the profession.

From their base in Canary Wharf, The PA Club extended operations overseas, creating PA communities and events in a number of locations.

We have frequently worked with PA Club events over the years, and always found Michael to be a super professional in his work, and someone who has always been a great supporter and trusted collaborator across the PA community.

An ethical gentleman with a resolute and positive outlook, someone who has always been a real pleasure to meet, chat and work with.

A pioneer in the sector and a jolly man of gentle wit and good humour. We will miss you. Rest In Peace Michael.

Our deepest sympathy, prayers and thoughts go to his wife and business partner Charmian and the family, and all of the PA Club team, at this difficult time.
