New head of London office named

The London Office now has a new head. Ministry of Home Affairs Chief Officer Eric Bush will travel across the Atlantic Ocean to take up his new position as the United Kingdom representative.

Eric-Bush-Hi-RES finalMr. Bush will be seconded to the post for three years. Deputy Governor Hon. Franz Manderson says Mr. Bush’s new position is critical as the global focus on the Cayman Islands has intensified and needs “high calibre representation” in the UK and Europe. “I am very pleased that Mr. Bush has accepted the position as the Head of the Cayman Islands Government London Office and UK Representative. I believe that this move will not only benefit the Cayman Islands but also his own career development as a civil servant,” he added.

Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin, who has responsibility for the Ministry of  Home Affairs said, “This appointment is bittersweet. I am happy to hear that Mr. Bush will be our representative in the UK, however I know that he will leave a big void to be filled as Chief Officer for Home Affairs.”

Cabinet Secretary Samuel Rose has oversight over the London Office. “I congratulate Mr. Bush on his appointment as the UK Representative and welcome him to the Cabinet Office team. He and I have worked closely together on many initiatives, some of which have had international implications. I look forward now to working closely with him on international matters with a focus on the United Kingdom and the European Union,” said Mr. Rose.

Mr. Bush is expected to take up the post on 1 July.

Government will begin looking immediately for a replacement for his current role as Home Affairs Chief Officer.
