C.E.O. Reappointments to New Ministries

Dean Barrow

The elected representatives were not the only people holding their collective breath to see if they would be doled out responsibilities in the government. The Chief Executive Officers (C.E.O.) for the ministries also waited and listened if they would continue to hold their posts. In most of the redesigned ministries, C.E.O.’s remained the same, however, in the Ministry of Works, Cadet Henderson lost to a newcomer from the Caribbean. The PM began that portion of his announcement with the reinstatement of the C.E.O. for his ministry.

“In the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development—of course remember that I also have the office of the Prime Minister and that will continue to be coordinated by C.E.O., Audrey Wallace. Under the office of the Prime Minister which is not a different ministry, there is responsibility for cabinet, inter-ministerial coordination, information broadcasting and the press office, parliamentary matters, restore Belize, economic development council—now called the business forum—special projects and the national honors and awards. And as I said, my lifelong rod and staff, C.E.O. Audrey Wallace will continue to handle those matters for me. But in the ministry proper, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, C.E.O. economic Development who of course will be working then with Santi as the Minister of State will be Misses Sharman Hyde. In the Ministry of Trade Investment, Private Sector Development and Consumer Protection together with Minister Erwin Contreras, the C.E.O. will be Mike Singh. In the Ministry of Natural resources and Agriculture, the C.E.O. will be Misses Bev Castillo. In the Ministry of Forestry, Fishers, Sustainable Development and Indigenous peoples, the C.E.O. will be Doctor Wendell Parham. In the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology and Public Utilities, the C.E.O. will be Doctor Collin Young. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Attorney General—and Sedi I was calling the C.E.O.s to say who will be renewed and I realized now that I had not called him—the C.E.O. will remain, Alexis Rosado. Alexis please forgive me; I hope you didn’t have too many anxious moments when you didn’t get a call. In the Ministry of National Security, the C.E.O. will remain Colonel George Lovell. In the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, again I have not called Lawrence—my good friend Lawrence Sylvestre—will remain as C.E.O. in that ministry. In the Ministry of works and Transport and I am particularly pleased with this, I was able to persuade to become C.E.O., a gentleman whose name is legend across the Caribbean who left CDB in the extremely senior post of person in charge of  all infrastructure and projects—engineer himself, but obviously a first rate manager—mister Carlson Goff. He will become C.E.O. in the Ministry of Works and Transport. In the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Mister Lindsay Garbutt remains as C.E.O. in the Ministry of Health, Doctor Peter Allen remains as C.E.O. In the Ministry of Labor, Local Government, Rural Development and NEMO, Misses Candy Saldivar Morter is C.E.O. In the Ministry of the Public Service and the Elections and Boundaries, Misses Marian McNab will become the C.E.O. in the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation and Poverty Alleviation, Miss Judith Alpuche is the C.E.O. and in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, Mister David Leacock is C.E.O.”

It is expected that in the next few days other appointments for statutory boards and diplomatic missions will be made.
