It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that the Scorpion Technologies team announces the passing of our Founder and President, Brian Buchan.
Brian passed away peacefully at his home in Kamloops BC on Sunday May 17, 2020. As per his wishes, Brian’s family has indicated that there will be no service for Brian, however in-memoriam donations are welcome to any of Brian’s favourite charities. Links are provided below.
Brian built Scorpion Technologies from the ground up, believing that building a great, local team was key to the success of any small business. He took great pride in Scorpion’s steady growth, year over year, and together with his team, weathered many twists and turns in the economies of the sectors that Scorpion serviced. He always tried to put his team members first, holding them in as high regard as his customers. He never wanted to sell the business, and never wanted to move from Kamloops – his hometown – taking great joy and pride knowing that he was helping to employ local Kamloops residents, and help to develop their skills and careers.
In recent years, Brian stepped back from the day-to-day operations of Scorpion, letting his trusted team grow and develop the business while he oversaw things with his leadership team.
Despite our collective feeling of loss, the Scorpion Technologies team is committed to continue with the business, and to build upon the legacy that Brian has built for us.
