Image Source Mourns Passing of CEO and Founder, Brian Haner

It is with great sadness that the Image Source family announces the untimely passing of its Founder and CEO, Brian Haner. An icon in the industry, Brian was a passionate and inspirational servant leader. In partnership with Image Source President, Thomas Goos, the pair grew Image Source from a small company to the $30 Million + company it is today.

He was admired and respected by so many and will be sorely missed. “Brian’s personality and spirit lit up a room” said Tom Goos, Image Source President. “He was the most positive and genuine person I have ever met. He loved connecting with people and creating lasting relationships. His friendship and leadership will be greatly missed.”

Brian’s infectious energy, enthusiasm, and dedication to helping people grow and succeed are the foundation for the company and culture that Image Source embodies today. Brian was an inspirational leader and leaves Image Source financially strong and well positioned to thrive and grow. The 65+ members of the Image Source family are grieving his loss but determined to fulfill Brian’s vision.

Brian is survived by his mother Beverly and two adult children, Austin Haner and Bailey McKenzie, both of whom are employed at Image Source.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Junior Achievement of Washington where Brian was a proud board member.
