PSOJ mourns Brian George's sudden passingMonday, October 24, 2016
KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) joins the business community in mourning the sudden passing of Supreme Ventures Limited’s (SVL) president and CEO Brian George.
The PSOJ in a news release Monday said that George, who through SVL was an active member of the organisation, had a good working relationship with the PSOJ executive, and although he wasn’t a native of Jamaica, he was committed to the development and growth of the gaming industry and by extension the Jamaican economy.
“Brian was a very smart and hard-working businessman, and a man committed to the development of his business and the people he surrounded himself with,” said PSOJ President Paul Scott. “He will be greatly missed.”
PSOJ CEO Dennis Chung added: “I met Brian when he came to Jamaica with GTECH in support of Supreme Ventures. At the time I was a commissioner at the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission when the licence was awarded to SVL. Through his leadership at both GTECH and SVL, he transformed the gaming environment from one which was very informal to what it is today, where many persons benefit through sports, education, among other things. His visionary leadership and sense of corporate social responsibility will be well missed.”
The PSOJ also extended sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at Supreme Ventures.
