Brian Colin Charlesworth (1948-2023)

CIBSE interviewer and member of Membership and Registration Panel remembered

On behalf of the Membership and Registration (M&R) Panel, CIBSE would like to recognise and remember Brian Charlesworth, who died last month.

Brian was a generous, amusing, inspiring person to know, and well respected in the industry. He was also a loving family man.

Brian was a CIBSE interviewer from 2003-18 and sat on the M&R Panel for almost 10 years. He was a great mentor and helped many to develop their professional interviewing skills.

After finally retiring completely, he threw himself into beekeeping and ink line drawing, at which he was exceptionally skilled, producing the most wonderful drawings.

When Brian was awarded his CIBSE Silver Medal in 2018, he did not want a formal presentation, so it was presented to him in a local pub. He will be missed greatly and his humour and contribution to CIBSE will be remembered.
