Founding member of the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR), J. Paul Morgan, has died.

Morgan, who served in the capacity of deputy director general of the organisation before ascending to the rank of director general, had more than 40 years of experience in utilities, engineering, utility regulation, management, and consulting.

He was also a founding member of the Organization of Caribbean Unity Regulators and served as its chairman on more than one occasion. More recently, he was involved in a number of international regulatory consultancies.

Morgan was praised yesterday by People’s National Party’s Shadow Minister of Science, Technology and Information, Julian Robinson, for playing a pivotal role in the development of Jamaica’s telecoms regulatory sector.

He is survived by his wife, Janice, and children.
