Great sadness continues to fill the hearts of many as news spreads of journalist Lucy Monro’s tragic death. The animal lover and sports enthusiast was fatally injured after colliding with motorbikes during a coast-to-coast charity cycling challenge with Team SWR this past weekend. As Swiss Media Group’s Editor-in-Chief, Lucy founded equestrian magazine, Equestrio, 11 years ago alongside business partner and close friend, Michael Lahyani.
“Her passion, kindness and relentless pursuit of excellence have left an indelible mark on our team, our products and our DNA,” read a joint statement issued by Michael Lahyani, Publisher and Founder, and Gerard Belicha, Publisher and CEO, both of Swiss Media Group. “She will be sorely missed on so many levels, first and foremost as a dear friend, and also as an outstanding Editor-in-Chief and inspirational leader. Lucy truly was an extraordinary woman; as a close friend rightly put it, “She was one of life’s special people””.
“We miss her so much and always will,” added Gerard Belicha.
