Brian Ge­orge will be sadly missed

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

I AM deeply sad­dened by the news of the pass­ing of Mr Brian Ge­orge, pres­i­dent and CEO of Supreme Ven­tures Lim­ited. Brian Ge­orge has been an in­te­gral and valu­able part of the Jamaican busi­ness com­mu­nity since as­sum­ing the lead­er­ship of Supreme Ven­tures in 2003.

Mr Ge­orge was known for his out­stand­ing mar­ket­ing and man­age­ment skills that helped to pro­pel Supreme Ven­tures to the po­si­tion of be­ing a ma­jor and suc­cess­ful busi­ness. He was in­stru­men­tal in the growth of the gam­ing in­dus­try in Ja­maica and spear­headed ini­tia­tives to utilise the pro­ceeds of the in­dus­try for so­cial and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of our coun­try.

Brian Ge­orge ex­hib­ited ad­mirable cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and con­trib­uted his time and man­age­ment ex­per­tise to the work of sev­eral pub­lic boards. He was an ac­tive board mem­ber of the CHASE Fund and in 2012 was ap­pointed chair­man of the board of di­rec­tors of the Ports Se­cu­rity Corps and as a di­rec­tor of the De­vel­op­ment Bank of Ja­maica Lim­ited. At the time of his pass­ing, Mr Ge­orge was deputy chair­man of the Na­tional Health Fund.

Brian Ge­orge will be sadly missed for his en­ter­pris­ing mind, his man­age­rial at­tributes and ex­tra­or­di­nary busi­ness acu­men. He will also be re­mem­bered for his pleas­ant per­son­al­ity and com­mit­ment to the de­vel­op­ment of Ja­maica and the Caribbean re­gion.

I ex­tend sin­cere con­do­lences to his wife, Ke­neea, his sons, other rel­a­tives and to the en­tire Supreme Ven­tures fam­ily.
