She has been called restless innovator, relentless in her drive. Imani Duncan-Price has been Group Marketing Manager for the JMMB Group since April 2009 with responsibility for the design and execution of marketing strategy for JMMB's operations in Jamaica and the Dominican Republic (DR), and more recently, Trinidad & Tobago, as the company has succesfully expanded to offer a wider range of offerings in keeping with "having the client's best interest at heart".
Four years with the Boston-based OTF Group grounded her experience in strategy, consumer analytics, marketing and product positioning as she worked with companies and governments in Bermuda, DR, Rwanda and Jamaica. Duncan-Price garnered wide knowledge of financing options, deal structuring, and regulatory bodies to facilitate business development and expansion as a former director of the Development Bank of Jamaica.

As Miss Jamaica World 1995, Duncan-Price focused on sustainable environmental practices as well as violence reduction in schools, and was the first spokesperson for Peace And Love In Schools Jamaica.
Her unique combination of entrepreneurial spirit and passion for social transformation were indelibly shaped by her parents and life experiences. Aidan and Stephen, the two men in her life, definitely keep things real.
