Dear Martens Centre friends,

It is with great sorrow and sadness that we inform you of the passing of our dear colleague and friend, José Luis Fontalba, Head of Communications and Marketing.

José Luis was with the Martens Centre from the very beginning and his creativity, ideas and energy contributed enormously to what our organisation is today. We will all miss him dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are now with José Luis’s family.

No words can adequately express the sadness we feel with José Luis’s passing nor the privilege we had to work with such a bright and exceptional mind at our sides. We will honour his memory by continuing the work he excelled at and loved so much.

For more details about the funeral and condolences, please see here. A book of condolences will also be available at our headquarters during the week of 17 September.


With heavy hearts,
The Martens Centre family
