From Rafael Villasante Guzman: Que triste noticia. Sin duda un gran profesional y una excelente persona.
From Victor Josebachvili: Sad news indeed. I had the pleasure of working with him at JPM and Chase for many years and will never forget him!
From Carlos Heighes: Muy triste escuchar que otro de nuestros colegas se va. Brian era un eterno enamorado de la región y buen amigo con el grupo de Latinos.
Lo recuerdo bien y quedarán las buenas memorias de su amistad. Por favor hazle extensivo mis condolencias a su familia.
From Gustavo Dominguez: He was such a key figure in the foundation of Latam E M investment banking in the 1990s and ealry 2000s. He will be sincerely missed. My sincere condolences to his family and closest friends.
From Kenneth Kryzda: So sad to hear! A good friend and colleague for more than 20 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, RIP
From Susana de la Puente: He touched so many of us with his generosity, his intelligence, his strength and his joie de vivre and unique sense of humour! We will miss him very very much!! His premature and sudden departure makes us thing about how fragile we all are and how lucky we are !!!
From Timothy W. Davis: This is terribly sad news. Brian was a wonderful man, a terrific father to Patrick, and a very intelligent and sophisticated professional. He was also a very dear friend, and I'll miss him very much.
From Robert P. McDonald: I met Brian in 1983 after nine years in London and upon returning to New York, was charged with building a nascent investment banking presence in Latin America with zero personal exposure to the area.
Brian immediately grasped where our small group was headed and embraced, participated and promoted our efforts. He was a natural leader to whom others gravitated and had an uncanny sense of finding the “deal” and creative ways to ensure its closure.
Our paths also crossed later on in Washington when Brian was at Treasury and I was with the Red Cross.
Brian will be sorely missed by his family, friends and colleagues and remembered as one of the most significant contributors to the footprint that JPMorgan Chase presently holds in the Western Hemisphere.
From Tony Singleton: Brian will be missed but not forgotten. A leader who included all in his business and someone who had a sense how to get things done. My condolences to his family.
From Christopher Garnett: I learn with great sadness of the death of my friend and offer my deepest condolences to his son and the rest of his family. I first met Brian in Buenos Aires in 1993 — and last spoke to him about a year ago, when he was chucking a little over the aborted IDB China meetings! He was a kind and noble man: always willing to help; a great conversationalist and entertaining companion. I’m sure those mourning him number thousands.
From Alexandre Chenesseau: I learned about Brian's passing through former colleagues of mine. I would like to express my condolences to his family and friends. I had the opportunity to work with him and one of his clients at Lazard. He struck me as very kind and knowledgeable about Latin America. He was a very respected professional and one could only witness the long and authentic relationships he developed with his clients.
