From Phil Bowell
This is a huge shock. Bryan was a great guy and helped so many people inside and outside BCAL. He was heavily involved in the first BCAL Overseas Managers Pool training course which I was fortunate to be a member of. There were only 7 of us, 6 from BCAL and all from Operations so to be picked for Overseas Sales & Marketing was a huge honour and we needed a lot of training and support. Bryan helped coordinate that and I am sure my colleagues will agree we will forever be in his debt. RIP Brian - sincere condolences to all his family at this extremely sad time.

From Howard Meredith : RIP Bryan very sad news.
