A 25-year GED veteran, Briese was diagnosed with cancer 10 months ago. The GED announcement of Briese’s death says “He was a successful innovator with many patents and was always looking to improve our customers’ products and systems. Bill was known in the industry for his contributions with IGMA and most recently serving on the FGIA board of directors. Bill will be missed by the GED family, not only for his contributions to the business but most of all for his friendship.”
