Death of Fairs marketing director

IFA software business Fairs marketing and financial director Angela Kirk has died while on holiday with her husband in Greece.

She had been suffering from ulcerative colitis and Crohn&#39s disease.

She was 46 and had been married to Fairs managing director Dr Czes Kosniowski for four years.

Fairs, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, was set up by Kosniowski in 1984 and specialises in writing point-of-sale and back-office software for IFAs.

Kirk joined Fairs in 1992 from the banking sector. Outside her work, she was famous for making dresses which she loved wearing to prestigious events. She also made accessories for miniature dolls&#39 houses.

Kirk was known in the industry for her friendly and approachable manner and was an excellent point of contact between customers and the company.

Her organisational skills ensured the smooth running of company events, such as the Fairs&#39 user meetings, where clients could discuss the company&#39s products.

Kosniowski and Kirk each had two children from previous marriages. Kosniowski says his wife will be missed as a mother, step-mother and business partner. “She was such a bubbly person who always made me happy. She never let her illnesses stand in her way.

“She refused to put her life on hold. She wanted to live life to the full and enjoyed everything she could,” he says.
