Dominica’s light and power company, DOMLEC now has a new general manager to replace outgoing boss, Collin Cover.
DOMLEC has confirmed that Bertilia Leblanc McKenzie has been appointed to lead the company.
She was Human Resources Manager at DOMLEC and has been acting in the place of Cover for the past two months.
Earlier this year Cover announced his resignation from the company.
He cited a better offer at another company as the reason for his departure.
It has since then been announced that Cover will head the Grenada Electricity Services (GRENLEC).
According to DOMLEC, “McKenzie has been with the Company for over 16 years, most recently as Manager of Human Resources, and has demonstrated her commitment to the Company and her capacity to lead. Her academic background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the City University of New York and a Master of Business Administration, Distinction, from the University of the West Indies.”
“For the past two months she has served as Acting GM and comes to the role of General Manager at a time when the Company prepares for a new energy environment with the proposed introduction of geothermal energy,” states a release from the company.
It adds, “In her new role, McKenzie will be a member of the Emera Caribbean leadership team and will have access to expertise within the group to support her in her role. The Emera team will also rely on guidance from McKenzie and be able to draw on her experience as it seeks to build a regional business to the benefit of all stakeholders – customers, employees, and shareholders.”
The release concludes, “McKenzie is supported by a dedicated senior management team and a well experienced group of employees at DOMLEC, who together will ensure that DOMLEC continues to focus on safety and delivering a high quality of service to electricity customers in Dominica.”
