After five years with the Immigration Department, Deputy Chief Immigration Officer Dennis Brady has taken a leave of absence to pursue a legal career in the private sector.
Mr. Brady has joined the team at Stuarts, Walker, Hersant Attorneys-at-Law.
At a recent farewell function held at the department’s Elgin Avenue office, Chief Immigration Officer Franz Manderson expressed appreciation for his deputy’s support for measures to improve service to the public; strong leadership of the enforcement/intelligence division; and the professionalism he brought to investigating immigration offences.
‘Mr Brady is well known for his dedication to the department, and for not leaving the office each day until the job is done,’ Mr Manderson said.
Mr Brady expressed gratitude to the department’s management and staff, and gave them some advice.
‘I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure under the leadership of CIO Manderson,’ Mr Brady said. ‘The department has made tremendous progress under (his) leadership, and I urge you to continue to build on that progress.’
A replacement for Mr. Brady was not immediately named.
