James Moss-Solomon, former director - corporate affairs at GraceKennedy Limited, has been appointed executive-in-residence to the Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) at the University of the West Indies, Mona.

GraceKennedy has agreed to support the initiative for one year with the possibility of an extension, the company said in a release yesterday. The programme will be managed by the GraceKennedy Foundation, as the company's primary vehicle for outreach and education.

The executive-in-residence initiative was developed to advance the relationship between the business community and tertiary institutions, GraceKennedy said.

Moss-Solomon will work with the MSBM to maximise its capacity by engaging in the following activities: procurement of endowments, fund-raising, education-business sector partnership development, boosting the institution's profile and garnering international support for programmes.

He will also focus on capacity building and empowerment of entrepreneurs by assisting with the establishment of an incubation fund to support and promote entrepre-neurship. In addition, he will assist with the establishment of internship, mentorship and work/study programmes. Attention will also be given to curriculum review to ensure the relevance and salience of material being used.

"GraceKennedy Limited, through the Foundation, remains committed to positively impacting people's lives by actively promoting educational programmes and processes," the release said.
