Long serving Board member, Sir William C. Allen, K.C.M.G., BS, MA, JP, has resigned to pursue retirement interests and businessman Ethan W. Adderley has been appointed. The changes are effective as of year-end 2018.
Consolidated Water Bahamas Ltd. Board Chairman, Wilmer F. Pergande said that Sir William served with grace and dignity applying seasoned contributions and good judgment to the board’s tasks at hand.
“Sir William has been a very involved board member for all of his 14 years. We came to rely on his oft times exceptional counsel and good judgment in all matters related to the progress and care of board matters, the company, its people and shareholders.”
Mr. Pergande continued, “We work closely with the Water and Sewerage Corporation to develop solutions to improve the availability of potable water for residents in Nassau. And he recognised the importance of drinking water as a valuable component of nation building and furtherance for The Bahamas.
I think that’s why he made such a good and productive Board member. We warmly thank him for his contributions over 14 years and we will miss him at our meetings - but know he will answer, if we call.”
Mr. Pergande also announced that, effective December 2018, Ethan W. Adderley has been appointed to the Consolidated Water Bahamas Ltd. Board of Directors.
“The Board warmly welcomes local Bahamian businessman, Mr. Ethan Adderley.
We look forward to his contributions including his proven fresh, often innovative solution-based approach which will greatly assist us in our goal to expand our business beyond New Providence and the island of Bimini.
“We look forward to Mr. Adderley adding impetus to our efforts to increase Bahamian ownership in the company. Additionally, his local connections and views on community and government relations we feel will go a long way in helping us convert our current good relationship with the Water and Sewerage Corporation (WSC) and Central Government personnel, into an excellent one!
We have a committed Board team and I believe we will accomplish all matters arising on our 2019 agenda,” concluded Mr. Pergande, the Consolidated Water Bahamas Ltd. Board Chairman.
