Alastair Hamilton, Chief Executive of Invest NI said “I was deeply saddened to hear that Brian has passed away following a short illness.

“Brian was a true entrepreneur with the vision and commitment to set up First Derivatives and grow it in to the global business it has become. I have witnessed first-hand, Brian’s personal drive and ability which has been pivotal in establishing Northern Ireland as a global centre of excellence for Financial Services technology. Brian was also deeply attached to his home city of Newry, and ensured that the success of First Derivatives as a company had a positive impact on the wider community.
