Arbitrium Capital has honoured its chair, Ray Horsburgh, following his sudden passing last week.

He is also a former chief executive of Smorgon Steel and Australian Consolidated Industries Glass Group, a non-executive director at Pact Ltd, Traffic Technologies and President of Rotary Club of Williamstown.

Harvey Kalman, the acting chair of Arbitrium, called Horsburgh a gentleman and a great mentor.

"He showed great support of Arbtrium and his counsel will be sorely missed."

Horsburgh was awarded an Order of Australia for his service to the steel industry and service to disadvantaged youth.
