Two Caymanians are climbing the civil service career ladder after recent promotions.
Jonathan Jackson has been appointed deputy chief officer in the Ministry of District Administration, Tourism and Transport and Neyka Webster is the ministry’s new chief financial officer.
Mr. Jackson will have specific responsibility for district administration, National Weather Service, and Sister Islands affordable housing.
“Primarily, he will direct and advise ministry staff and heads of departments on the implementation of policies in relation to his areas of responsibility. He will also support Chief Officer Stran Bodden in the overall management of the ministry’s activities and projects,” said the ministry in a statement.
Mr. Jackson was previously general manager of the Recreation, Parks and Cemeteries Unit in the Public Works Department. He also worked in the Planning Department and has 21 years public service experience.
He said, “I remain grateful for this opportunity to serve the Caymanian community and look forward to many more years as part of the good governance system that will shape the Cayman Islands into a successful future.”
Ms. Webster will move to her new post, from the Portfolio of the Civil Service and the Cabinet Office where she is acting chief financial officer. Prior to joining the civil service, Ms. Webster worked in the private sector accounting firm KPMG.
She said, “I am very excited to be given the opportunity to take on the post of Chief Financial Officer and I am looking forward to the new challenges and to making a positive difference within the ministry.”
