GIS boss to take on finacial services challenge

| 03/06/2011

(CNS): After a dozen years working with the governments marketing and communications department, Angela Piercy, has been appointed Head of Communications and Public Affairs, in the Financial Services Secretariat, where the marketing veteran will be taking on the challenge of Cayman’s financial services image. Piercy’s move from GIS will involve communication support for policy and legislative initiatives, market development activities and the overall reputation of the country’s financial services sector.  “The move to the Financial Services Secretariat provides fresh horizons for me, and the chance to focus my efforts on one of the country’s most vital industries,” Piercy said.

Although she said she enjoyed her time with GIS, and will miss many aspects of her work and colleagues she was looking forward to her new job. “I will miss my GIS colleagues,” she added. “I have been fortunate to work with a great team, as well as some very dedicated persons across the civil service.”

Orrett Connor the Cabinet Secretary who has oversight for GIS said, “Working with Angela in her capacity as CIO has been a pleasure and her presence will be missed,” he said. “It is therefore good to know that the Cayman Islands Government will still benefit from her expertise.”

Piercy joined GIS in December 1998 as an information officer and was promoted to Manager of Information and Public Affairs in January 2006. Last year, her appointment as Chief Information Officer was made retroactive to September 2009.

She holds a master’s in integrated marketing communications from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, and a bachelor’s degree in mass communication from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, New York.

Gained over more than two decades, Piercy’s broad media experience includes extended periods as a journalist and newspaper editor, both in the US and locally.
