Scot Prov’s Phil Alibone dies of cancer

Former Scottish Provident national account director Phil Alibone has passed away after suffering liver cancer.

Tributes have flooded in for Alibone, who was diagnosed only two weeks ago. Alibone was at Scot Prov for 40 years, working at offices all over the country. He retired in 2000.

Bright Grey head of sales Kevin Stevens says: “Phil was a massive character. Whenever you speak to people about him they smile. He was a champion of the people, a real hero. When he retired there was almost a roadshow, he had a retirement party in almost every city in the country and they were all packed. He was popular, funny, honest, straightforward and lovable.”

Sesame research manager Dale Tranter says: “Phil was a really good bloke. One of the best national account managers I’ve dealt with. He was really professional but at the same time was one of the lads. He was Scot Prov through and through. He was like Brighton Rock, if you cut him open he’d probably say Scot Prov inside.”
