Edwards appointed chair of BOSVG
Maurice Edwards, former director general of finance, has been appointed the new chair of the Bank of St Vincent and the Grenadines (BOSVG).
During last weekâs sitting of Parliament, tributes were paid to Edwards by Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalaves and former Opposition Leader Arnhim Eustace.
St Clair Leacock, representative for Central Kingstown, also congratulated Edwards on his recent appointment.
âI want to take a minute or two to say what a tremendous achievement that really represents for Maurice Edwards, a son of the soil,â Leacock said.
The Central Kingstown representative noted that Edwards grew up in Redemption Sharpes and has always been âan unassuming characterâ.
Leacock opined that the new BOSVG chair, through his dedication to the public service, could be recognized as a motivational pillar for young professionals and students to emulate.
âItâs not very easy to make a name in the public service of St Vincent and the Grenadines, because itâs really a labour of love,â Leacock said.
âMuch is taken for granted in what some of our outstanding public servants do,â Leacock said.
Edwards retired from the Public Service earlier this year.
