In addition, Green — a certified chartered accountant — will also manage IFC’s relationships with regional governments, donors and private sector stakeholders.
“Judith brings tremendous professional experience and a deep knowledge of the Caribbean market,” said Luc Grillet, IFC’s senior manager for Central America and the Caribbean. “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. 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. [. . .]
