Abraham out? BVIEC announces vacancy of GM post

BVI News understands that Leroy Abraham will not be returning as General Manager (GM) for the BVI Electricity Corporation (BVIEC).
This is signalled by a vacancy notice which the government-owned power company published on its social media page on Tuesday, September 27.

The notice said: “BVI Electricity Corporation is seeking an energetic, result-oriented and high-calibre professional candidate to fill the position of General Manager.”

The power company further said the successful candidate will be largely responsible for working to meet the electrical transmission and distribution needs of the territory, and working regionally and nationally on key resource issues.

It is not clear why Abraham, who’s held the post for several years, is not returning to the post.

In the meantime, news of the BVIEC General Manager vacancy follows a public dispute between the power company and long-time fuel supplier, Delta Petroleum. It also follows complaints about the rising electricity costs in the territory in the last several months.

Efforts to get a comment for Abraham — the first and only BVIEC GM to serve as Chairman of the Caribbean Electric Utility Services Corporation (CARILEC) — were unsuccessful up to publication time.
