- Archibald replaces Devon Charles
- Appointed during recent AGM
- Board currently chaired by Shawn Charles
Public Utilities Minister Norland Cox has confirmed that former banker Michael Archibald was recently appointed to be a member of the Board of Directors of Grenlec.
Cox said that Archibald replaces Devon Charles. The appointment was one of the outcomes at last week’s Thursday Annual General Meeting of the company. The board is currently chaired by Shawn Charles who recently achieved a doctorate in Philosophy in Civil Engineering focusing on the development of a resilience-oriented framework for managing post-disaster reconstruction projects.
The other members of the board according to Grenlec’s website are Winifred Duncan-Phillip; Linda George-Francis, Kent Mitchell, Dorsett Cromwell, Duane Noel, Alexandra Otway-Noel, and Kay Simon.
Grenlec is currently the main supplier and distributor of electricity on the island. In 1994 it was privatised and the main shareholder became WRB Enterprises, an American energy company. However, in late 2020 Government repurchased the majority of shares and since then the company though owned by Government, operates as a private company in accordance with the Companies Act.
