Dear Alan, I feel very fortunate to have been in your team and working so close to you during the last two years.
Every trip with you, every meeting, every time we had lunch together was a master class for me about how to face the toughest challenge at work or the smallest everyday life matter. You probably had same secret for both: passion, optimism and respect to everybody.
Even in the most stressful situations, you always found time to care about those who were around, putting people first and using your smile as a daily working tool. Your huge knowledge and experience were never larger than your humility.
Every time you had the opportunity, you talked about your wife and your daughters and how much you wanted to spend time with your family. My thoughts are with all of them.
I wish I could have continued learning from you.
