Mr-Roy-McTaggart-MLA-300-200GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands – Councillor for the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Financial Services Roy McTaggart has joined the Progressives in the run up to the May 2017 general elections in the Cayman Islands.

Premier and Leader of the Progressives, of which he is a founding member, Hon. Alden McLaughlin said he was delighted with Mr. McTaggart’s decision to officially join the group.

“Roy has been an integral part of this Government since the May 2013 elections. It is obvious that he shares the same ideals and philosophy of the Progressives,” said Mr. McLaughlin. “He has worked side by side with us to help restore trust and confidence in the government and the Cayman Islands as a whole. For that we are grateful and welcome him with open arms.”

Mr. McTaggart, who joined Government after he was elected as an independent, said the move to the Progressives is natural and logical.

“As you can see from my voting record over the past two and a half years, I have generally supported policies and legislation introduced by the members of the Progressives, so this move is what I consider the next natural thing for me to do as I intend to remain a part of Government following the next election, assuming I am re-elected,” said Mr. McTaggart. “I have been able to put my financial experience to work for the country and have helped develop policies to grow our economy, put a stop to excessive and wasteful spending and helped to ensure a high quality of life for our citizens that they expect and deserve.”

Mr. McTaggart is a former chairman of the Board of Cayman Airways, a member of the Commission for Standards in Public Life and is chairman of the Young Caymanian Leadership Foundation. He has been active in many roles in the community from serving in several roles with the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce, including two years as president. He has also been the treasurer of the Church of Christ and enjoys mentoring Caymanian students in need of positive role models. He was also a member of the Board of the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.

Mr. McTaggart joined KPMG in the Cayman Islands in 1985, transferred to their Orlando office in 1986, and returned to the Cayman Islands in 1988. He was admitted to the partnership in 1991, became joint Managing Partner in 2003 and appointed Managing Partner in 2007. He was Managing Director of KMPG in the British Virgin Islands from 2007-2012.
