Tony was inspirational to so many operational risk practitioners. I worked with Tony at Jefferies and ED&F Man on a number of regulatory remediation projects. Tony was passionate about risk management, and had a real sense of making risk management practical, simple and value add. I learnt so much from Tony and many of my friends and colleagues have too. He really did go far and beyond the project scope and his real drive was educating others. Risk management has lost a true legend in the field. Thank you Tony for all you taught me and all you did for Risk Management.

I worked with Tony at EY in the late 90s. We were both Directors in the newly formed Risk Consulting Practice in London. Many years later, I worked with him again at RiskLogix. Significant domain knowledge combined with the ability to communicate and teach. Several years later my daughter worked with him as an intern and junior analyst and attended his operational risk course. He was as helpful and generous with his time/knowledge with young developing talent as he was with experienced professionals. A gentleman, coach and mentor.

Deepest sympathies to family, friends and colleagues.

I am so very sad to hear of Tony’s passing. He was such a lovely man and so deeply knowledgeable about risk management. He had a real knack for taking a complex topic and explaining it simply so that understanding was easy. I know the risk management profession will feel his absence.

I remember when I first met Tony at the Graduate Recruitment Evening – He was encouraging and approachable even with his seniority, and that impression lasted the 10 years of my time working with him. Tony taught me in abundance about Risk, and he was generous with his time and deep domain knowledge – always ready to teach, to share, to support. Thank you Tony. RIP.

Tony was my first ever manager of my professional career. Although I only worked with him for just under 2 years, any success I have in my career I owe to Tony. He didn’t just teach me Risk Management but armed me with the skills and tools to be successful in my career. I use all these skills today and even reference Tony’s teachings and wisdom to my grads and juniors. Tony wasn’t just a manager but a father figure to me. Rest in peace Tony.

Although we met a long time ago, I remember Tony very well as both a thinker and a doer. He was well ahead of the curve in the operational risk domain and adept at translating that insight into decisions. Rest in peace, Tony!

We are strangers to the world of risk management here at Appletree Lane. But one thing we do know is that Tony B was a delightful man, a gentle gentleman.

I was so sad when I heard the news. I owe him a great deal. Tony was there at the start of my own learning about risk, and when we later wrote risk exam questions together and his passion for his subject was always clear. He was a great teacher, an excellent conference speaker and always kind and respectful of everyone. You will be greatly missed, Tony.
