Obituary Brian Connors

Wöhler Brush Tech GmbH mourns the loss of its longstanding US representative, Brian Connors.

Nachruf zum Tod von Brian Connors

Rudolf Brenken, managing director: “We were filled with sadness to hear that Brian had lost his fight against cancer on January 21st. Our thoughts are with his family, especially with his wife and two grown daughters.”

Brian started his career at the Paul Marsh trading company in New York City, Wöhler’s US representative at that time. In 1997 he founded Connors & Company Inc., representing both Wöhler and the Desco Bristle Group, one of the biggest importers of bristles and silk. Brian decided to retire as the Wöhler representative early in 2012 due to his illness.

During the years of working together with Brian he became more than just a business partner, he was also a friend. Elisabeth Wöhler particularly remembers the kind support he gave following the death of her husband Dr. Fritz Wöhler. Many people at Wöhler have fond memories of this warm-hearted, humorous and decent fellow.

Matthias Peveling, also managing director, was shocked by the sad news and promised: “We will remember Brian from all the years we enjoyed working and travelling together. Brian was a great character and will surely be missed by many in the brush and bristle business.”
