He moved to Cayman with his wife Tricia and two young children in 2007 to help open Garmin Ltd’s Cayman offices at Camana Bay. Josh’s primary responsibilities with Garmin include securities laws compliance, contract drafting and negotiation, and providing guidance regarding corporate governance issues. In addition, Josh provides legal guidance for a number of Garmin entities located in Europe, Canada, Australia, India and China.

Both Mr. Honaker and Mr. Maxfield are looking forward to getting involved in the community and being able to give of their time and talents, the release noted.

The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman was the first service club in the Cayman Islands, receiving its charter on January 28th, 1966, having been sponsored by the Rotary Club of Boston, the seventh oldest club in the world.

Major projects of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman have included the construction of the Bonaventure Boys Home and the Frances Bodden Girls Home. Major annual events organized by the club include the Senior Citizens Party, downtown Christmas Tree Lighting, and active participation in Batabano.

With approximately 100 members, the membership of the Club is a fair representation of the business community in Cayman with members ranging in age from their 20s to their 80s.

The Rotary Club of Grand Cayman meets weekly on Thursdays at 12:30 at the Westin Casuarina Hotel.
