A stalwart pillar in her own right, newly appointed Executive Director Bernadette Ambrose-Black has hit the ground running since her assumption of duties on August 2, 2013. She has wasted no time in assimilating herself in to the innate workings of Invest SVG. Shortly after her commencement of duties, her baptism by fire had her not only leading missions to Trinidad and Tobago and the United Kingdom, but being keynote speaker at these missions. Soon thereafter, she headed the organization’s ten year celebrations with the anniversary exhibition on the 27th September 2013. Ambrose-Black though petite, is a force to be reckoned with and will undoubtedly do St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Invest SVG proud.
