PM hails Brian Ge­orge

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

THE GOV­ERN­MENT of Ja­maica mourns the pass­ing of busi­ness­man, pres­i­dent and CEO of Supreme Ven­tures Lim­ited and vice-chair­man of the Na­tional Health Fund, Brian Ge­orge.

Prime Min­is­ter An­drew Hol­ness paid tribute to Ge­orge’s busi­ness legacy in the de­vel­op­ment of Ja­maica’s econ­omy and the pri­vate sec­tor.

Recog­nis­ing Ge­orge, who died on Oc­to­ber 23, as a true be­liever in Ja­maica, Hol­ness said the Gov­ern­ment and the peo­ple of Ja­maica are truly sad­dened by his un­timely death.

“It would be dif­fi­cult to enu­mer­ate all of the con­tri­bu­tions Brian made to Ja­maica and our peo­ple. Through var­i­ous ini­tia­tives led by him, Supreme Ven­tures has be­come known for not only its lot­tery busi­ness, but also its deep be­lief in com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment. Un­der Brian, the com­pany be­came a stan­dard for good cor­po­rate cit­i­zen­ship”.

Hol­ness added that the coun­try and the gov­ern­ment ex­tend sin­cere con­do­lences to his wife, Ke­neea Lin­ton-Ge­orge, his sons, friends and fam­ily in Trinidad and Tobago and here in Ja­maica.

Hol­ness said Brian’s legacy will be cher­ished by all who he touched and im­pacted with his self­less­ness and ded­i­ca­tion to Ja­maica.
