In Memoriam: Brian McAlpin
It is with deep sadness that EGC announces the passing of team member, Brian McAlpin, who served as web developer for the Agency.
Brian, who was based in Island Lake, Illinois, joined EGC in May of 2021. Having a unique combination of experience in creative services and a craftsman’s perspective to web development, Brian was instrumental in bringing many website projects at EGC to life.
Brian’s easy-going nature made him instantly likeable among every member of the EGC team. This likability transcended the distance between Island Lake and New York, and despite having to communicate through Zoom, emails, or phone calls, the personal connection was instant and lasting. No task was too great for Brian, whether it was overhauling a website or making minor adjustments on request at a moment’s notice—and all carried out with efficiency and courtesy.
Among Brian’s greatest qualities was his ability to explain highly technical aspects of web development in language that was easy for a layperson to understand, as demonstrated by an Agency blog he wrote, “User Experience: How Does Your Website Feel?” Please read it, as this gives a true sense of Brian’s professional expertise and personal warmth.
We at the EGC Group extend our condolences to Brian’s wife, Joan, and family at this time.
Thank you, Brian.
