KINGSTON, Jamaica, Aug 31, CMC – The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has appointed Jamaican Judith Green as the head of its operations in the English-speaking Caribbean.

Her appointment makes her responsible for coordinating IFC’s programme of investments and advisory services in several countries including Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.

In addition, Green, a certified chartered accountant, will also manage IFC’s relationships with regional governments, donors and private sector stakeholders.

IFC’s Senior Manager for Central America and the Caribbean,, Luc Grillet, said, “Judith brings tremendous professional experience and a deep knowledge of the Caribbean market.

“Through her leadership, we look forward to continuing our strong track record in the region, serving our clients and providing opportunities where they are needed most.”

Green, who will be based in Jamaica, joined IFC in 2011 as a Senior Investment Officer tasked with identifying business opportunities and actively managing portfolio projects in Jamaica. In 2013, she took external service leave to head the Jamaica government Coordination and Implementation Unit which successfully coordinated and monitored the implementation of the various targets and initiatives under the Government’s International Monetary Fund Extended Fund Facility.

She returned to IFC in April 2016 to take up this appointment.

“I look forward to working with our long term partners and forging new relationships, both with the private and public sectors, that support this region’s tremendous potential,” Green said.

“IFC is deeply committed to working with the region’s Governments to improve the business environment and increase competitiveness in addition to making private sector investments that support inclusive growth and job creation.  Our expertise in successfully structuring public-private partnerships is also an area in which we can work with Governments, to support their capital expenditure programmes and asset divestiture plans.”

In 2015, IFC clients in the Caribbean supported 29,477 jobs and provided US$81 million in government payments.
