From April 1997 to March 1999 Brian was Head of IT at V2 North America, based in New York, and thereafter when he was World-wide Head of IT, based in London.
I worked closely with Brian, he was responsible initially for completely re-structuring, and then maintaining, V2's worldwide IT systems, including its Website and Intranet and its royalty and other business systems.
I always found him to be extremely conscientious and reliable, very knowledgeable in all aspects of IT and the Internet and a manager who inspired loyalty and good performance from his subordinates.

As the Executive Director of a Foundation which makes grants of about $5 million per year in small increments, it didn't take me long to realize that far too much of the organization's limited resources were being spent on its annual application/review process.
Brian Uckert and I worked in an intense collaborative effort to create an fully automated, secure intranet with excellent results. The system is a huge success! Open 24/7 to all community members; moreover security level for each user is fully adjustable at a moment's notice.
It enables an average of 100 applications annually to be individually peer reviewed by 3-4 academics who can post the review comments and scores right on line.
The system then tabulates automatically and is easy to sort and analyze by all or by a selected few from the community. One can also download any information into an excel spread sheet to circulate to non-community members. All without the need to print, email large files and create discs!
Working with Brian and WorldWideVibe was a dream come true!
He took my description of living hell and turned it to a heaven on earth!
