After being appointed to act in the post in 2019, Oleanvine Maynard has now been officially installed as the full-time Managing Director of the BVI Ports Authority (BVIPA).

The Cabinet decided on the appointment during its May 19 meeting.

Maynard has been appointed to serve for two years with effect from March 18, 2021, a post-Cabinet statement released on Thursday said.

The Cabinet has also given instructions for the BVIPA’s Board to review her performance annually.

Maynard is a former Labour Commissioner who has also previously served as the personal assistant to the Managing Director.

Only a year, BVIPA Operations Manager Dean Fahie was announced as the new Acting Managing Director. However, the Ports later retracted that announcement describing it as being “prematurely” made.

    What a huge mistake. I guess the BVI is the place where you can rise to the top even with flawed … I have nothing against this lady but certain people does not fit certain positions and she most certainly doesn’t fit this position. Anyone knows why she [left] Labour? Will here be any different? Just same sh*t, different department. All governments whether it be VIP or NDP or any “P” should operate with a fair steady hand. Not wishy washy like these past governments.

    The ports need to be run by someone with experience of running a large logistics operation, not once again by someone’s relative.

    The Ports are a national embarrassment. They should also be privatized.
