FORMER PRESIDENT of Jamaica Promotions Corporation Sancia Templer is now the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Health.

Her appointment was made effective at the beginning of December.

It follows the retirement of Elaine Foster Allen, who occupied the position for four months after being transferred from the Office of the Prime Minister subsequent to a change in administration following February's general election.

Bloomberg, a financial data company, lists Templer as being a director of KLE Group Limited and also a member of the Urban Development Corporation board which was recently appointed by the new Andrew Holness-led administration.

Templer was not available to comment on her appointment yesterday when The Gleaner made efforts to contact her.
