Clearing air on UDC dates
THE EDITOR, Sir:
We refer to your article headlined 'Management shake-up at UDC - Board replaces two senior officers', which appeared in The Sunday Gleaner of February 26, 2017. We observed a number of inaccuracies that deviate from the content of the official communique circulated by the corporation, and have noted them below for your awareness and redress:
1. Mrs Perkins joined the corporation on July 15, 2013, not 2015 as the article states.
2. Ms Sibble, general counsel, and George Harty, chief engineer, will, respectively, have oversight for the Subsidiary Management and Revenue Generation, and the Planning, Development and Project Management divisions until further notice.
3. The article further states that "the latest management changes at the UDC come less than two months after the board replaced Desmond Malcolm as general manager. Malcolm's replacement, Dr Damian Graham, started on February 3." In actuality, Mr Malcolm demitted office on July 15, 2016, more than six months ago, whereas Dr Damian Graham assumed the position on January 3, 2017, and not February 3.
