In Memoriam: Brian Goldner


Our classmate Brian Goldner has died. Brian just recently took a leave of absence from his role as CEO of Hasbro, and Rich Stoddart ’85, who is a Hasbro board member, had stepped in as interim CEO. Brian transformed Hasbro, an old-school toy and game company, by retooling many of its brands into films, television series and online games. He died at his home in Barrington, R.I. He is survived by his wife, Barbara (Genick) Goldner and their daughter, Brooke Goldner. His son Brandon predeceased him. More on Brian and his remarkable career can be found in this New York Times obituary.
