GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands – Following the recent elections, of Wimbledon has been appointed Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

He replaces the Rt. Hon. of St. Johns DBE who is now Minister of State for Department for Exiting the European Union.

The appointment of Lord Ahmad is a positive for the Cayman Islands as he has a 20-year career in the City working in banking and finance, including at the NatWest Group where he was a senior manager in corporate banking and financial markets. He was later Vice-President and Marketing Director of Alliance Bernstein and his last role before joining the government was as Strategy and Marketing Director at Sucden Financial.

Whilst it is a shame to lose Baroness Anelay as our Minister at the FCO, we have now gained a great friend that will be at the Brexit negotiating table who is familiar with the combined priority areas of the Overseas Territories,” said Premier Hon. Alden McLaughlin. “I congratulate Lord Ahmad on his appointment and look forward to working with him to address areas of common interest and continue to improve the United Kingdom’s understanding of our aspirations and priorities.

I welcome the opportunity to meet Lord Ahmed and hope to continue the spirit of positive engagement and mutual respect we have enjoyed over the past four years, which has served to enhance the position of the Cayman Islands in the United Kingdom and on the global stage.” said Mr. McLaughlin.
