Rolex USA CEO Allen Brill Passed Away ...

Another Rolex President Belongs To The Ages
Allen Brill Passes Away

Allen Brill, President & CEO or Rolex Watch USA now belongs to the ages as he passed away from lung cancer on November 27, 2010. Allen Brill was diagnosed with lung-cancer just six weeks ago.

Allen Brill joined Rolex in 1978 and started as an area sales manager, and in 1999 became the executive Vice-President. In 2004 he was promoted to and replaced Walter Fischer as President & CEO. Allen Brill was 64 years old and worked and resided in New York City.

Rolex USA CEO, Allen Brill is pictured less than a year ago (on the right) at the 2010 Rolex 24 at Daytona with racing legend Vic Elford. Wow. He looked so alive less than a year ago. It just goes to show, how fragile life is...

On behalf of the readership of Jake's Rolex World, I would like to offer our condolences to Allen Brill's family, as well as his extended family at Rolex USA, and Rolex Geneva. We know he achieved great success for Rolex and know he will be fondly missed.
