Vale Kate Bell

It is with sadness that Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) pays tribute to Kate Bell – a truly valuable member of our Melbourne team – who tragically lost her life last weekend.

Kate joined our team in May 2020, tackling the role of Executive Assistant to two of RLB’s Directors with dedication, enthusiasm and exceptional pride in her work. Despite starting a new job in the midst of a global pandemic, Kate quickly found her feet and proved that she was willing to take on any responsibility and rise to any challenge.

The RLB family will remember Kate as an incredibly kind soul. With never a bad word to say, Kate’s beaming smile certainly brightened our working days. RLB is a better place for having had Kate join our team, albeit only for a short time.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to Kate’s family and friends. We know that words alone cannot express the loss and sadness that this senseless, tragic act has caused.

With the blessing of Kate’s family and in her memory, RLB is raising money to support education to create a nation that respects women, in which every woman lives in safety, free from all forms of men’s abuse.

All funds raised will be donated to White Ribbon Australia. If you can, please donate via the link below;
