WESTERN BUREAU:
T’Shura Gibbs, an executive at the Jamaica Public Service Company, was last night elected the new president of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Gibbs defeated incumbent Gloria Henry 50-35 votes at the chamber's Annual General Meeting at the Grandiosa Hotel in Montego Bay.

Henry was seeking her third term as president.

 "My leadership will not be unilateral, but instead will be a collaborative effort," Gibbs said following her victory.

"The team I lead will be focused on three pillars in moving the Chamber forward, that is: membership, communication and relevance."

Gibbs also said the Chamber will remain a strong advocate for the benefit of members. 

"We also want to ensure that anybody that wants to do business in Montego Bay, this is the one stop shop, the authority on all the information that is needed to establish a business or vacation in Montego Bay," she said.

T'Shura Gibbs is the third female to lead Montego Bay chamber in its 85-year history.

The first, the late Pauline Reid, served between 2006 and 2008.
