He was a great friend of Ja­maica

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

THE MIN­IS­TER of Cul­ture, Gen­der Af­fairs, En­ter­tain­ment and Sport Olivia Grange has ex­pressed deep sad­ness at the pass­ing of Supreme Ven­tures pres­i­dent and CEO, Brian Ge­orge.

“Brian was a proud Trinida­dian and also a great friend of Ja­maica. He of­fered such out­stand­ing sup­port to Jamaican sports, cul­ture, and other critical ar­eas of na­tional de­vel­op­ment, over the years. He was per­son­ally com­mit­ted to Ja­maica’s de­vel­op­ment.

“His pass­ing is both a shock and a blow. We will miss him dearly. I ex­tend con­do­lences to his fam­ily and friends at this time.”

Brian Ge­orge had been pres­i­dent and CEO of Supreme Ven­tures Lim­ited (a lot­tery com­pany) since 2003.

Un­der law, con­tri­bu­tions from lot­tery com­pa­nies have been used to fund sports de­vel­op­ment, early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion, health, arts and cul­ture.
