Dieter Bock

Categories: Commerce, Law

Countries: Germany

Hans-Dieter Bock, or Dieter Bock, was born on 3 March 1939 in Dessau, the capital of the Free State of Anhalt. (This later became the German Democratic Republic and is now Germany).

Having fled with his family in 1953 to Munich, West Germany (now Germany), he became a lawyer and tax consultant turned businessman.

His Wikipedia page and his obituary in The Guardian, give much information about the man and informs that he choked to death in the Atlantic Kempinski luxury hotel in Hamburg, Germany, aged 71 years, on 12 May 2010. He was survived by his wife, Olga, and their four sons.

The Companies House website confirms that his full name was Hans-Dieter Bloc and lists the four companies in the UK in which he had been appointed as a director. 

He is shown as Dieter Bock on the marble slab at 1 Poultry.
