PROFESSOR BRIEN HOLDEN - A GIANT IN HIS FIELD
Our Team at FAL has acted for Professor Brien Holden in his capacity, first as CEO of one of the first round CRCs and then for the numerous organisations he led, right up until his untimely death this week.
Brien was, by anyone’s measure, a force to be reckoned with. He was always fiercely loyal to his family, his staff, colleagues and friends. I am lucky to have been part of that circle for the past 15 years. During those times we were challenged and had great successes which were celebrated and shared with all his Team. Together, under Brien’s leadership that Team did its bit to make the world a more equitable place, generally, but of course, always focused in the area he was most passionate about – bringing sight to those who should be able to see.
Brien’s passing is the end of the era in which every day he strove, through science and humanitarian means, to make his mark on the world. Whilst he is no longer at the helm, his legacy is the people and structures – the Team he has left behind to pursue his legacy with equal passion, compassion and unerring drive.
He will be sorely missed.
