Tributes paid to former IAT Company Secretary Anthony Morter

The Institute of Asphalt Technology has announced its former Company Secretary Anthony Morter passed away on Monday 25 March.

Mr Morter played a key role in the IAT for many years having become Secretary in 1997, holding that office for 14 years. During this period, he became the interface for the IAT membership and was the go-to person for members.

Chris Lycett, former IAT President commented, “As President, I found him to be extremely loyal to the IAT principles and conscientious in carrying out his duties as Institute Secretary.”

The IAT says a full obituary will follow in due course.

The funeral will take place on Thursday April 25th, at 1pm at St Michael’s Church, Betchworth, followed by light refreshments. The IAT says it is intended to be a celebration of life, hopefully with colour and not too much black.

Leading business consultant Neil Levett paid tribute, saying: “Anthony Morter was the first person I dealt with at The Institute of Asphalt Technology when I first bought Highways Magazine in the late ‘90’s.
At the time the institute was based round near Heathrow. We worked closely with each other over many years and he was never anything other than a perfect gentleman. A good man lost.”
