CONNECT SAINT HELENA ANNOUNCES THE DEPARTURE OF MR BARRY
HUBBARD, FORMER CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Connect Saint Helena announces the departure of Mr Barry Hubbard who formerly served as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr Hubbard oversaw the establishment of Connect Saint Helena following the divestment of utilities from the Government of St Helena in 2013 as part of a divestment programme.
Under Mr Hubbard’s tenure, the subsidy paid to the Company has progressively reduced, and in tandem, the Company has seen improvements to the reliability of electricity and water services. Connect Saint Helena thanks Mr Hubbard for his services to the Company and wishes him well with his future endeavours.
Plans are in place to appoint a new Chief Executive Officer in the near future. In the interim, Clare Harris, Executive Director (Business Support) has been appointed Acting Chief Executive Officer.
Communication arrangements for the Company remain unchanged.
Chairperson, Connect Saint Helena
