Everton Hansen is out as director general of the Jamaica Agricultural Commodities Regulatory Authority.

The Gleaner understands that the decision was announced during an emergency board meeting at the authority's office, 1 Willie Henry Drive, off Marcus Garvey Drive in Kingston, on Monday evening.

The board of directors of the regulatory authority has declined to confirm Hansen's departure.

However, it is understood that the board found his management style incompatible with its vision for the organisation.

Hansen had served a probation period of two months.

Meanwhile, in the interim, Gusland McCook, who acted as director general before Hansen's appointment, will retake the reins of the organisation.
