Thoughtworks mourns the sudden and tragic passing of Luke Barrett. Luke was the leader of our European business, but also a friend, a colleague, a mentor and a role model to Thoughtworkers around the world.
Luke joined Thoughtworks in London in 2004 as a Business Analyst and later served in roles as a Client Principal and Interaction Designer before stepping into the role of Managing Director, Europe. His contributions in spirit and in deed live on.
We are humbled to be entrusted with the obligation to carry forth his legacy. He was an impassioned champion of Thoughtworks' mission and will be sadly missed.
He is survived by his wife Anne, his son Charlie, his daughter Annabelle, his parents Alison and Peter, and his sister Esther. We express our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
