CARILEC has a new chairman

CARILEC’s Board of Directors has recently appointed a new Chairman in the person of Mr. Leroy Abraham, General Manager of the British Virgin Islands Electricity Corporation (BVIEC).

Mr. Abraham had previously served as the Board’s Vice Chairman. This post has now been assumed by Mr. Roger Blackman, Managing Director of Barbados Light & Power Limited (BL&P). These hierarchical adjustments to the CARILEC Board of Directors were prompted by the retirement the Board’s previous Chairman, Mr. Eddinton Powell, which took effect on December 31st, 2020. The Association’s next Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for May 2021.

Mr. Eddinton Powell was elected as Chairman of CARILEC’s Board of Directors on May 23rd, 2019, at the Association’s (thirty-first) 31st AGM, held in St. Lucia. Mr. Powell succeeded Mr. Jeffrey Locke, then Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Belize Electricity Limited (BEL), as Chairman of the Board.
